Networking Wired and Wireless Computers through wireless router
Posted on 2008-06-26
I have a computer that is connected directly via a LAN cable to a wireless router.
I have laptop that is connected to the same router wirelessly.
The first computer (assigned by the routers) IP address is 192.168.1.3. I've shared its C:\ drive.
When I ping this computer from the laptop, I get a reply. However, when I enter \\192.168.1.3 into the run command it gives me an error message saying that I 'may not have permission' and something to do with a server not available. I cant remember it exactly but its a standard windows error.
Sorry I cant remember but its just a thing I am setting up for a friend and am not in his house at the minute.
Anyone, have any ideas how I can access the computers C:\ from the laptop?
