Hi - Can anyone give some advice on the following...

I have:
1 router, with 2mbs connection
1 Workstation - win XP - connected to router via CAT5
1 Sony Vaio - win XP Pro - connected to router via WLAN
1 IBM Thinkpad - win XP pro - connected to router via WLAN

Internet connection works for them all

Workstation can see the two laptops
Laptops can sometimes see the other laptop and workstation
None of the computers can talk... I keep getting this message...

'//computer_name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource...'

Any help would be greatly appreciated -

Try creating an identical user account on each computer with the same password. Could be that the Guest permissions aren't enough for what you're trying to do.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
