We recently installed a new internet router in our house that doesn't support HPNA, so my desktop computer has lost all access to the internet, but my laptop can connect through wireless. As a result, it seems that I've somehow lost my ability to access my shared folder on my pc (running Windows XP Pro w/ SP2) from my Powerbook G4 (Mac OS X 10.4.7) through an ethernet cable. I was able to connect the computers with the cable before yesterday. I was hoping that I could connect my PC to the internet through the Powerbook's wireless connection.
When I try to connect my laptop to the server, I get the error message: "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in 'smb://......' could not be read or written. (Error code -36)"
Both computers have been unable to ping each other since yesterday. I did a system restore, and my firewalls are turned off, but I haven't been able to make any progress.
I kinda doubt that the problem is the cable, but I'm going to try a different one tomorrow.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
