Why can I not access wireless XP pc running broadband connection from another XP & ME pc
Posted on 2004-04-28
I have 3 pc's two with XP (pc1 & pc2) and one with Windows Me (Pc3)
all pc's are on the workgroup "network1"
pc2 & pc3 have a wireless pci card installed and
pc1 has a wireless access point connected to it via a patch cable together with a adsl usb modem
pc1 can access the broadband thus has internet connectivity
it can also view and access the shared folders on pc2 and pc3.
pc2 and pc3 can view and access each others shares
however pc2 and pc3 cannot access pc1, the message is that access is denied
all pc's can ping each other.
should the ip address, subnet and default gateway be static on pc2 & pc3
also in order to share the internet connection on pc1 what should the gateway be for pc2 & pc3, should it be the ip address of the access point or pc1.
