    I am running 4 XP HOME computers on wireless network. All have internet access and recognize eachother on the network (athough Norton Internet Security causes some problems). ICF is disabled, file sharing is enabled. problem is with my desktop. It can communicate on the network with the other computers, but when other computers try to open files on the desptop, I get the usual no access message with Not Enough Server Storage error message. I increased virtual memory. Everything used to work OK until I added a new laptop to the network. I am at my wit's end. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Since it happened when you added a new machine, what happens if you remove it? What changes did you make to add the machine? Are you running with a broadband router? We need details about the network topology.

    Thanks for the reply. The new laptop is using the 54mb wireless card. All other machines are using 11mb 802.11b adapters. I upgraded the Actiontech broadband router with firmware to allow the router to communicate with the laptop. That's the only change I made. The router is connected to primary computer with USB, and other network computers connect with ACTIONTECH wireless adapters. Thanks.
