I'm new around here and after looking through who knows how many guides, FAQs etc I think it's time I got some opinion's from my problem exactly.
Okay, I have a Desktop PC running Windows XP Professional and a laptop which is running Windows XP Media Centre Addition (Both on SP2 and with all up to date Windows Update features).
Now, the laptop cannot access the Desktop PC when it's logged on, however, if it is on the logon screen it can (which I know isn't right).
When I go onto View Workgroup Computers on the laptop it will show both computers, but when I double click on the Desktop it will say "Access is denied". When I try go to View Workgroup Computers on the Desktop it will simply go "Access is denied".
The Desktop is connected by a wired connection, and the laptop on a wireless connection.
Whenever I try and ping them by using the Command Prompt and the pinging option for the router itself it seems to not respond.
Is there anything I can do to fix this, as I think the Desktop PC is refusing all network connections.
Help greatly apperiecated!
