I can't access a Laptop from a wireless connection

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

-- I am using a linksys broadband router, and I have two computers. A lapton
on
the living room which is conectes via a ethernet cable to the router and a
desktop in the bedroom which is conected to the router thorough a motorola
usb wireless adapter. From the laptop (wired) I can see the desktop and
access from it the shared files, but from the desktop (wireless) I see the
laptop, but I can acces any of the files, I always get the message: "
.......(name of pc) is not accesible you might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
have access permisions. The server is not started"
By the way both computer access succesfully the internet.
Thanks

    Greetings tombcat,

    Go into the Services (Click Start - Run - services.msc) and scroll to the
    Services and make sure it is started and set to automatic.

    I'm having the identical problem. I followed your advice. The Server on the
    laptop was paused, and I started it. The desktop server was OK. It still
    doesn't work.

    Any further comments on this, please?

    It is necessary to set the 'shares' on each computer to authorize
    access, and this should be done with an administrator signon. Note that
    loading XP SP2 resets the shares to default (off).

    Do you have any firewall in place such as zone alarm? It let me connect to
    the internet but wouldn't let me view files or share the printer until I
    turned it off. Have now added the ip addresses to the zone alarm trusted
    zones and it works fine.
