New network problems


Recommended Posts

i have a desktop pc hooked up to a router, and another desktop pc running wirelessly through the router.

i wanted to network them so on the main pc(with router) i click on "set up or change your home or small office network" and followed the steps, then i went on the wireless pc and put my windows xp cd in and did the steps as the network wizard told me to. and when i click on view workgroup computers on my main pc(routered) it says"

MsHome is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

what do i do?

forgive me as it has been awhile since i used the used the wizard.. but lets start at the basics

get to your control panel (click start->control panel if on default xp, start->settings-control panel on classic), select network connections. right click on your connection, select properties, make sure file and prnt sharing is on..

also can you ping each computer?

firewalls?
