    hi there people, please help me!

    Set up a home network using an wireless router (d-link set up ip and password keys etc..), used the xp pro wizard and it all seemed to be working.
    I can ping all ip's on the network so they are all connected, but when i try to file share between computers i get and error message ( please contact administrator because you may not have permission) or sumthing like that.

    i have set up a network before but that was using xp pro on all computers. are there any conflicts between xp pro and xp home when networking?

    Any ideas? help needed

    Try this.

    Create a file named FIXANON.REG using notepad with the following contents:

    ------------------- cut after this line -------------------
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    ------------------- cut before this line -----------------

    Techgfx, to get help please start your own thread because we aren't smart enough to keep track of two people's problems in one thread. But, since you are really just asking for clarification now ...

    JohnWill must have been in a hurry! He forgot to say that after you create the file you need to run it (by double clicking on it). It will merge the fix into your registry; if that makes you nervous, create a restore point first.

    It really doesn't much matter where you create the file--desktop, C:\, My Documents, etc.
