Wireless Network Problem
Posted on 2003-12-10
I have a Linksys Router, with one computer directly connected to the router (host) and a laptop that is trying to connect to the host primarily to share files and eventually the printer. Both the laptop and the host have a wireless card such that they are on the wireless network.
The laptop gets the following error message when trying to view the host "<workgroup> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the adminstrator of the server to find out if you have access permisions.". It never finds the host in the workgroup, much less on the network. Both have been set up using the Workgroup Setup Wizard to be in the same workgroup.
The wireless network is working just fine, as I can get internet connectivity from the laptop, but I cannot see any files on the host. File sharing is on, folders, drives, and an assortment of documents have been shared, they are both in the same workgroup, but I can't see any of them from the laptop, nor can I see the printer.
What am I missing?
