Hi,

I have recently bought a linksys wireless g router. I have it connected to my cable modem and then have my main pc connected to the router. I also have a laptop with a wireless g pcmcia card. Both the pc and the laptop are using win xp. Both can connect to the internet, both can ping eachother and the router. I have been messing around all day to get them to share files.

I have made a good bit of progress but am a little bit stuck now. I have used the same name for the network on both, I have disabled the win xp firewall on both, I am using Norton 2004 but this has also been disabled until I can get the rest sorted, I am the administrator on both machines as I am the only user!
I can see the network from both the pc and the laptop but on the laptop I can only see the shared folders belonging to it, I cannot see the ones belonging to my pc. It is working properly the other way, ie I can see all of the shared folders on the network from the pc (including those on the laptop)

Can anyone help me with this?

Oops, just figured out why I couldn't see the folders! I was sure that I changed the security settings earlier but maybe when I re-booted the machine I hadn't saved the settings yet. Thanks
