Problem networking my home computers, both have WinXP
Posted on 2004-11-16
I have 2 computers on the same ISP connection with ethernet cables and Linksys hub. I have tried running the NETWORK WIZARD, and am able to view the the 2 computers in "view workgroup computers". However, when I click on the icon for the other computer I get the error message:
\\COMPUTER2 not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network path was not found.
This is really frustrating, as i want to be able to transfer files and share my printer. Both computers have WinXP, and have Norton Firewall, WinXP firewall.
