[map] Network Pains...


Question

WooSH

Network Diagram/Map

To Help You, Help Me. lmao.

Heres the situation:

there are two computers: EMACHINES and D8400.

EMACHINES is hardwired and D8400 is wireless.

EMACHINES has XP Home and D8400 has Vista Business

They are both on NETGEAR workgroup.

Both are logged in using an Administrator Account.

D8400 cant see EMACHINES in "network' but can access it through \\EMACHINES and use printers and SharedDocs

EMACHINES can can see D8400 only in "Windows Home Network" and "Workgroup" but after trying to access it, it comes up with an Access Denied/Permission error.

All i would like is to be able to access each others shared folders, and printers. Also to be able to see each other for LAN gaming.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks so much for this. ive had this problem for a long time but i ignored it since i didnt need it that much, now i upgraded to Vista from XP HOME and i need the file sharing. I included a map that i made myself, to help aid u, as i understand the people with the problems dont clearly describe their situation.

Also if it helps to know, i didnt clean install Vista, since my DVD drive was a slave, therefore i couldnt boot from it. so i fresh installed XP then upgraded from there.

cheers,
