hi all - i feel like an arse, but for the life of me, i couldn't get this working. i worked on this for about three hours with no luck. here's the deal. 1. two pc's (both running xp home). desktop is called "office", laptop is called "cfsinc" 2. one linksys wireless router and the doo-hickey for the laptop i was able to connect the two pc's (changed ssid, enabled 128wep) with no problem. the wireless connection is solid and the laptop can surf the internet. however, i want both computers to be able to share files from the other at the root level. my friend would like to be able to do his work on the laptop, then go into the office and print. or, even more ideally, print directly from the laptop. but i told him this would require an additional 150.00 print server doo-hickey. so, my major problem was trying to get the two pc's to see eachother. so, here's what i did. right-click c drive on desktop - shared folder name is "office" on the laptop, try to map a network drive to \officeoffice (computer namefolder name)[/list=1] should be easy enough correct? however the laptop would tell me it couldn't find the name. then (i'm not 100% sure on this now) when i tried to browse via the network neighborhood on the laptop, it would see the desktop, but i couldn't access the share. i think i got some error about "no permission to view network resource". somebody freakin' help me!!! i have a wireless setup at my house and did not run into this problem, so i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong for my friend???
