Problems with XP home and professional - wireless network
Posted on 2005-04-17
I've a simple wireless network set up between three computers - two laptops and one desktop. Both laptops run XP professional, and the desktop runs XP home.
Now, I can quite happily access both laptops from the desktop, and access the laptops from both laptops, but I can't seem to access the desktop from either laptop (that sounds confusing..!). I can see the desktop is there on both, but the shared folders simply don't appear, and when I double click the desktop from the list of workgroup machines, I simply am told I don't have permission to access the computer.
I understand this may be an issue with XP pro vs home, but at the moment there's no way I can afford to shell out for the upgrade to professional.
Any advice would be more than welcome.
