hi guys...i am new to all this networking stuff and have been reading countless websites trying to find a solution. I have two computers, desktop (A) and laptop (B). A is connected to the Linksys wireless router via cable and B is connected via wireless card. A and B can ping each other. A can connect to B's shared stuff by doing the \\xxx.xxx... but B cannot connect to A the same way. It just says network path is not found. I can use the internet connection on both computers just fine. I have turned off windows firewall as well as norton internet security. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Both computers have unique names, same workgroup...

I have the same problem in which Computer A runs XP HOME and computer B runs Windows ME. I solved my problem by re-run the Windows Network Setup Wizard on both computers. You might want to try to re-run the Windows Network Setup Wizard on both PCS and see if it works on your computers. Please let me know the result. I'm very ancious to hear from you. Good luck!
