Hi, I have probably spent 40 hours trying to hook up my wireless network. I use Win XP on both systems. I purchased the D-Link Router and hooked it to my Cable Modem. I set up my connections and voila!! I had internet access on both computers. The problem is that I can't use the file sharing. When I go to My Network Places and View Workgroup computers, they both appear on my desktop, but my laptop denies me access. I can't seem to get them to transfer files over. I ran the cmd and can ping both computers on both systems. I have enabled the file sharing on the files...I just can understand why it wont work. Any ideas?
