It's safe to say that I am a networking newb. I just need a little assistance.
I have 2 laptops, and a linksys router, I also have McCafee Security Suite loaded on both (Windows Firewall is disabled). One is hooked up via ethernet, the other wireless card. I cannot seem to get them to communicate fully. They are in the same workgroup, and I can ping the machines. I've checked all of the subnet, DNS, gateway settings and all that jazz, they are the same. But I cannot see the wired computer from the wireless one, and I cannot get anything working like sharing music in itunes, and I can't see my printer that is connected to the wired computer. When I try to access the wireless computer from the wired one, it brings up the guess logon and I enter the password, it let's me in, but then when I try to access the shared folders, it says I do not have access to them.
Any and all suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. My goal is to be able to access my wired laptop and all the media stored on my external, and the printer from the wireless laptop. And this might be stretching it, but i would REALLY like it, if I could remote desktop into the wired laptop in my home from elsewhere.
When I try to share the printer connected to the wired computer, I click Apply => Ok, and then when I open up properties again, the printer is selected as not shared.
