I'll try this again.
I have a Desktop with XP and a Laptop with Vista connected wirelessly. Iím having a problem with my wireless network. I can see my see my Sharedocs file on my desktop from my laptop, but I canít see my Sharedocs file on my laptop from my desktop! When trying to see my laptop from my desktop I get a dialog box asking for(laptop)user name and password. I enter both, but my password is highlighted (as if itís the wrong password) and for a long time nothing appears to be happening. Finally, I get the message: ď(Laptop) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found.Ē How do I solve this problem? Thank You.

Vista handles file sharing differently than XP. There are a few different options that need to be enabled in Vista for Workgroup enabled sharing of files and printers.

A comprehesive article from MS is found here: File and Printer Sharing in Windows Vista

Thank You Baltboy!
My password protected Sharing was turned on in Vista. Thats why I couldn't connect to it.
Thanks again.
