I am having a problem accessing a windows xp shared folder on my network from my laptop (running windows media center). I cannot access the computer by \\computer-name or by \\ip-address. In fact, I cannot and never have been able to access any shared computer with this laptop (as far as I can remember). However, I CAN access a web server so long as I access it in the form of http://computer-ip. I have tried uninstalling and installing File and printer sharing for MS windows along with the Windows Network Client service to no avail. Any help anybody could provide would be greatly appreciated.
