File and printer sharing between Win2000 and WinXP via workgroup and wireless LAN
I have a small office network. 2 PCs are on Win2000 (hard cabled) and 2 Laptops on WinXP Pro (with wireless cards). I have successfully set up a wireless D-Link router to allow Internet Connection Sharing via a cable modem. All PCs and Laptops can now access the Internet ... but the 2 Laptops on WinXP cannot get access to the files and printers on the Win2000 PCs. All PCs and laptops use the same "workgroup" name (I did not use a "domain" name).
How do I get both laptops (on wireless) to access printers connected to the Win2000 PC?
1. The 2 Win2000 PCs can see each other - using the "Windows Network" explorer
2. The 2 WinXP Laptops (on wireless) can see each other - using the "View Workgroup" explorer
3. But the PCs can't seem to see the Laptops
... looks like I have a networking problem between the two OS?? Appreciate some HELP!
