    Hi,
    Im trying to set up a wireless network between my desktop and notebook with no success.

    On my notebook, in the network folder I can see the desktop but when I double click on it, the following message appears: \\COMPUTERXXXXXX is not a accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.... Access is denied.

    If I try the inverse way (desktop-notebook), a username and passowrd is asked, which I have no idea of what they really are.

    Both machines use windows Vista. Any idea of what might be wrong?

    Cheers!

    Do you have passwords on both machines? Vista default is to inhibit networking if the account has no password.

    If you create a user account on each machine with the name/password used to login to the connecting machine, you should remove the password prompt.

    What do you mean by passwords? User accounts?

    If so, yes, I do have user accounts with password on both machines
