I have 2 windows XP computers, networked together (wireless).
I can ping each computer from the other.
Then both show up in Network Neighborhood.
I have shut down all AV programs, firewalls, etc.
All my disks are shared using simple sharing. Everyone has full rights to all disks.
here is my IPconfig output:

Attached is the error message I get when I try to connect to a drive on the other computer.
I don't understand the "server storage" a** all my disks have lots of space and I have 768MB of RAM

BOTH have XP Pro
I tried using the floppy generated by the network wizard on one to set up the other -- but all it did was invoke the network wizard on the other.

I ran the network wizard several time previosly (on both)

I checked the logs and there were NO error messages.

Just because you can ping a computer doesn't mean you can access its resources. First off both computer need to be in the same workgroup. Right-click on My Computer, select Properties. Click the Computer Name tab. Make sure both are in the same Workgroup. If not chance one of them and restart.

From here you need to have the same user account and password you login to on one machine and the other. This is the easiest way. If not you could just map the network path to a drive letter using a different login. You can right-click on My Computer and select Map Network Drive.
