Sharing files on a wireless LAN
Posted on 2007-11-16
I am running XP Pro 2002. I am trying to share files on a wireless LAN. I have allowed each computer to be visible, i can see each others iTunes Library in the shared area of iTunes, I have shared the respective files using the security/share and I can connect both via the wireless network to the internet. However, i Cannot see the name of the network in my network places (only the network connections), i cannot see the other computer in my network places, i Cannot ping either computer from the other (i have checked the ICMP box for echo's on both computers) and i can't see the shared files i want to share. I have run a network diagnostic and get network adapters failed (when it tries to ping the other computer). I tried to set up a workgroup but this did not work either and suggested that i didn't have admin access or something....Any suggestions on how to fix this puppy so i can share files?
