Hi,

I used to have my laptop and p.c networked with a crossover cable and I could acess my p.c through my laptop but not my lapto through my p.c. This was fine though.

I am now using a bt home hub, my p.c is connected with an ethernet cable and my laptop is wireless, both are accessing the internet.

The problem is I cannot access my p.c files through my laptop vice versa or set up a shared printer.

I have followed all the steps in the how to which is why I am now here, I get this message.


campbellgroup is not accessible you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact administartor of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.


I am the only person who has ever uses this p.c thus I am the adminstrator, I really am stuck. Both systems are running on win xp.

please help :whistling:

When switching from wired to wireless, you need to run the Network Setup Wizard.

Control Panel>Network Setup Wizard.

Where do you see the message that Zone Alarms is running? Yes, it could cause the problem.

Check Add/Remove Programs. Also browse to c:\program files\Zone Labs (I think) or Zone Alarm. If you find the folder, look inside for a uninstall.exe or similar command.
