XP Pro to XP Home Wired/Wireless Network Difficulties
Posted on 2004-09-25
I have a desktop running XP Pro and a Toshiba Notebook running XP Home. I have a Netgear wireless router with the standard 4 ports. My desktop is connected to the router via a cable. My notebook is connected via wireless. When both connected through wires the network is fine, but when I disconnect the cable to my laptop, and connect to the network with wireless, I cannot access my desktop. I can still add an indivdual folder from my desktop as a Network Place on my Notebook, and access files that way. In addition, I have 2 printers connected to my desktop, and I can still print to both from my Notebook. As for adding a network place, on my notebook it allows me to add '\\desktop\share name', however I cannot access shares on my notebook from my desktop the same way. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
