    I am running Win XP Pro SP2. Was running simple file sharing for months without problem.
    My laptop and desktop and my cousin's desktop are linked by a router. Normally i just share a folder, for example "Data" in my laptop then from my desktop, I just need to type //192.168.1.100 and i can see the Data folder.

    However, since yesterday, when i do that, I get prompted that

    \\192.168.1.100 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator to find out if you have acess permissions.

    However, when I type \\192.168.1.100\Data, I can access it and see the content of the folder.

    The same is happening when I try to access my Desktop from my laptop. The weirdest thing is my laptop and desktop can access my cousin's desktop without any problem, just type in the IP and I can see the share folders.

    I tried searching the net, but no suck problem has been reported. Please advice.
