Hi,

I have a PC wired to a D-Link Dir-300 wireless router and an ACER notebook connecting using wireless.
So I made a home network using the default workgroup name Mshome.
Everything was going fine until one day the problem occured.
When I try to view workgroup in My Network Places by clicking "view workgroup computers" and error pops up saying something like mshome in inaccessible.

but this only happens on the notebook. on the PC i can view the workgoup list but the notebook's name isnt displayed only the PC's name.
but the notebook can actually connect to the PC using \\PC_NAME but the PC cant do otherwise.

i tried to ping but the results are the same - the notebook gets replies from the PC but the PC doesn't get replies from the notebook
I did the network setup wizard a couple of times again but to no avail

This post has all the things you'd need to check. Not going to type it all out when someone else already did it..hehe. Skip the part when the poster is talking about doing the ipconfig and posting.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
