My office computer is uses wireless network,but am experiencing problem with sharing.The computer is in the work group,but it seems it is unable to share or see other computers. If I use another computer I can easly access it's shared files but not from that computer.I tried to enable file sharing in my network places and rejoin the work group but when but to no avail. I try to run an IP address(using run on the start menu like:\\123.x.x.x ) of another computer in the work group I can't acces its shared folders.It is prompting for username and password which when given it says it can't find the destination. I can access the server without any problem I can also use remote desktop on the server and the other computers.I am able to view computers in the work group.I tried to use command line and a certain software to switch off another computer it can't find the path.what could be the cause?Please help me

maybe a firewall is blocking file sharing and the other things youre trying to do. ports 135-139 govern what you're after... check the firewall on your computer, the computer youre connecting to, and whatever hardware is in between.
is this the only computer that's experiencing this issue?
