Hi i have recently set up a netgear wgr14 wireless router in my student house and am sharing a broadband connection with it perfectly well (apart from the occasional drop off) i have also tried to set up a microsoft home network using the wizard (XP on all machines -7) to share files and printing except when i do even when i've managed to set it up and am able to view other computers but it tells me permission is not allowed (even when file sharing has been enabled) i have tried most home networking solutions with no luck, any help would be much appreciated
cheers nick millard
