A: Desktop connected to Linksys wireless router and internet;
B: Laptop with wireless card (running XP pro)
C: Desktop with wireless card
All stations can access the net through the wireless connection to "A" but none of the computers can access other "workgroup" computers.
I have run the Wireless network and Network set-up wizards many times. When I try to view "workgroup" computers from the "A" machine, I see "B" but can't access. The message is access denied. (I have not tried C yet.)
(I have the windows firewalls installed but the exceptions allow file/printer sharing.)
When I try to view the Workgroup computers on the "B" machine, I get the error:
"[Workgroup] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact admin to find out if you have access permissions. A list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."
All hardware is working fine. I had the system running perfectly a few weeks ago (including all file and printer sharing) and it seemed to me that it was not much trouble setting up the first time around. In fact, I don't recall doing very much and it just worked. (How nice!)
I subsequently upgraded Computer A and can't seem to get the system back up the way it was before with Workgroup capabilities and file/printer sharing.
I have spent many hours trying to fix this to no avail. Please help! Thank you very much.
