File Sharing in between Cached Domain credentials and Workgroup

Ok...I have a laptop connected to a domain at work, and conneccted wirelessly at home.  I sign on at home using my cached credentials and connect to a router for internet access.  I want to share files from the home PC to the laptop and do not have to share from the laptop to the PC.  I renamed the workgroup at home to the same as the domain at work and created a user id on the workgroup pc matching my domain credentials.  I cannot ping the IP address or the DNS name of the PC.  They are on the same subnet, and both are XP SP1.  Only after installing Netbeui on both machines can I see the machine from the network explorer and I get the access denied.   The domain at work is AD if that means anything.

I searched this entire site and some had resolutions that did not work for me.  

What is going on here?

Hi,

First off all, delete NetBeui.. You only need to have TCP/IP. After that, try to ping both machines (eachother off course) and see what happens. Make sure both machines are in the same subnet. If the machines cannot ping eachother, you cannot do anything else to connect them. First transport layer connection should be possible.. Try disabling any sort of firewall on the machines and try to ping again. If this doesn't work, please post IPconfig outcome of both machines..

Netbeui Deleted...Ip Address of both machines:

Laptop:  Wireless IP 192.168.1.20
             Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Home PC:  192.168.1.25
                 255.255.255.0

Snap Server: 192.168.1.40
                      255.255.255.0

Router:         192.168.1.1
                    255.255.255.0

The Nic card on my laptop is set to DHCP for my office network that actually has a 255.255.0.0 subnet, but it shouldn't matter because I use the wireless at home.

I am using a DLink Wireless DSL Router with the Snap and PC using the ports and Laptop using the wireless.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

The setup is correct, this should do the trick.. Although you should have a DNS server (normally the router functions as the DNS server).. Did you try to disable the firewall on the machines??

Firewalls Disabled, still cannot ping each other.  DNS is handled by router.  Should I have the router Port forward anything?  I tried to put the PC in the DMZ and still cannot ping it.

I may assume that all pc's are within the same LAN?? Does the router have more than one LAN connection?? Are these links within the same VLAN or LAN??? I think that the router created different LAN's (or a DMZ) and that might be the reason they cannot see eachother...

Is there a way I can tell if it did in fact create a VLAN for the wireless portion of the router?

Normally this can be programmed, but the Dlink probably cannot do this, so i guess there won't be any VLAN's (should be reading better next time). Still, i don't now why they cannot see eachother. All pc's are ablo to internet?? Maybe this router isn't designed for sharing data and the ports cannot communicate with each other.. DO you have a spare hub or switch lying around?? If so, try to connect the switch to the router and the pc's to the switch. Then, try to see if the machines are able to ping eachother..
