Hi guys, I'm running off of a Netgear router, using two desktop PCs. One runs from an Ethernet Cable, and the other is wireless. My laptop goes through wireless, using the internal adapter. Now, a long time ago I was able to, but it was on and off. Now, it won't work at all. I have ZoneAlarm Free Edition on all the computers. I made sure to add the computers to the trusted zone by IP address and all. It won't work even with them off. I am sharing a folder on my host desktop and the other desktop can see it, but the laptop can't. I just don't know why the laptop won't find it. Wannabe1 suggested the Network Wizard, but I never had to do that, I run all my security settings from the Netgear control panel. Please help if possible! :whistling:

The problem has since been solved (for now at least) after tinkering around with some more firewall settings, and conducting numerous experiments. Thanks for looking anyway :whistling:
