    I am unable to connect to any XP machines via network.

    I have over 5 wireless stations. I can access the station if it Isn't XP. However my two XP stations are inaccessable. (they are actually even inaccesible to eachother) They are connected to the interenet effectively however I can not establish information in terms of file sharing. I get the message "windows cannot access /Station Name" When I attempt to click on their computer icon in the network section of windows.

    All the wireless stations are on the same network name. I can ping every machine in the network.

    Why can't I connect by clicking on their icon in "network neighborhood"

    Also - is this "network neighborhood" on the desktop defined as "Active Directory" and how to i define the protocols? Please give precise information.

    PS- I have guest account enabled, and they are all on the same network.

    Why am I unable to connect?

    Thanks for any practical information.
