Windows is unable to gain access to the network.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windows.networking.wireless (More info?)

I have a wireless router by LinkSys model BEFW11S4 ver. 2
When I try to access computers in the network with Windows Explorer I get
the error message "Windows is unable to gain access to the network."
However, I can access the Internet from all 4 computers in the house.

File and Printer sharing are checked, IP address is set to 'obtain an IP
address automaticaly' and the Workgroup is set to the same name on all
computers.

Any ideas of what may be causing this, are appreciated.

Thank you

Tony
