Win XP home on laptop Win XP Pro on Desktop & Linksys WRT54G router. Both computers have wireless connection.
I have tried to get them to talk to each other. No Luck.
I get MSHOME not accessible You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator to find out if you have access permissions. List of servers for this workgroup not currently available.




frustrating to say the least.

do you have any firewall programs installed like ZoneAlarm?

Also make sure that both of your machines are on the same workgroup.

Laptop & Desktop had Zone Alarms (freeware) but I uninstalled it. Both machines are on the same workgroup name. I can ping the laptop from the desktop.

If the IP address information is the same (as in subnet mask, gateway etc) then it looks like ZA may still be on your machines, you have another program that has a firewall protection, or you don't have file sharing enabled.

Do you have any anti-virus programs installed?

host names should not be the same.

I have also noticed that your IP address is in IPv6. That may be causing the problem. If you are not using IPv6 for anything else, uninstall that in the network connection of your NIC on your laptop.
