Hi guys, Let me start by saying when it comes to networking, I am alot like Sergeant Shultz: I KNOW NOTHING! I KNOW NOTHING!
My original PC is an Older no name brand PC that is an Athlon 750 running Win2K. It's IP address is 192.168.1.103. USB Wireless.
I now have a celeron laptop that is running XP Home and it's IP addy is 192.168.1.101 Laptop card wireless.
I have a Dell 8400 Desktop 3Ghz Runing XP Pro and it's IP Addy is 192.168.1.104 Wired directly to the router.
All equiptment is Linksys wireless-G. I don't know if these IP addys are always the same or change when I shut them all down.
I was until recently using the Win2k machine for all the main work and the laptop just for surfing. Not even sharing a printer. I have added the Dell 8400 and began to setup a network. I moved the printer to the new dell and got all the PC's to print on it. I am able to access shared drives on on the new Dell and the Laptop both running XP. Everytime I try to acess the Old Win2K Machine from the new Dell XP machine I get the Following error message:
\\Main-pc is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator to find out if you have acess permission.
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.
If I try to access it from the laptop it asks for a user name and password then gives me the same error message.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to fix it. I need to be able to copy all my files to the new machine. Also should I consider upgrading the win2k machine to XP? I don't know if the machine is worth it but am not ready to replace it just yet. It will be used mainly for the little ones to type a school paper, surf and IM.
Call me clueless Thanks
Also if you can point me a good tutorial or book it would be appreciated
