I recently set up a network in my office between 3 desktops 2 laptops and a server. so far everything works great except the one laptop the latitude d505 can see all the other computers and the server but it Can't connect to them. I have tried everything and i was on the phone with dell support Gold service for about 2 hrs and they can't figure it out so i am really desperate here. if anyone could shed some light on this problem of mine i would be very greatfull. Thanks ... :)

To anyone who was looking at this post, I figured out what was wrong... HEH It was the stupid Norton Internet Security promgram running on the server. lol I uninstalled it and now everything works perfect. Just wanted to get this on the site incase anyone else was looking for an answer. Hope this helps someone......
