I'm having a slight issue with my desktop and accessing it's files from my laptop:
From my desktop's point of view, when I open the network section in windows explorer only the other computers currently connected to my home network appear. I can access them fine and send files both ways; all happy.
From my laptop's point of view, the network section displays everything currently connected, computers, speakers, the router and even my desktop. When I attempt to access my desktop from my laptop however, I receive an error saying it cannot be accessed. Furthermore, when I try to ping my desktop's ip, the request times out. The same result also occurs when trying to access and ping from my girlfriends laptop.
So, my question is why is this happening and how is it happening? I have file and printer sharing selected, everything is within the same Workgroup and there doesn't seem to be any network adapter updates to be had on any of the computers. If someone could help me troubleshoot this I'd be very grateful.
