pardon the lenght of this question ;-)
Ok we have a network at our buisness (lan) and two computers are networked together through a hub 3com 10/100 ethernet hub. Now the network works fine, our net., administrtor set it up. when the buisness finally got a laptop with integreated lan we purchaded a cat 5e rj 45 ethernet cable and attached it to the hub alon with the notebook. now at first i couldnt even get connected to the network, but then realized there was no dhcp client so i assigned a manuel ip address in the tcp/ip settings of the local area networks properties. the main computers ip address was set at 192.168.10.2 and the other comp. it was linked to was set at 192.168.10.1 both with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. I configured my notebook for the following settings: i changed the ip address to 192.168.10.4 and i added a subnet mask value of 255.255.255.0. Now this finally worked....somewhat worked.... I have access to the secondary computer through the laptop but not to the primary computer. everytime i try to access the primary computer throught the lan a password dialog box comes up asking for a username and password...so thats where im stuck rite now... please help..... our productivity is being compromised!!

Is this on a domain or a workgroup?  Seems to be a workgroup!!!

If it is have you setup a local account on the PC that you want to connect to?

Yeah you just need to type in the relevant local user name and password to connect to the share. If you're not sure what they are then create a new user

You need to create local user accounts on each machine that they have to connect to.  Then assign permissions to each folder that you want them to access.
