I am working on a network that 3 of the computers have wireless connections,
and can see each other and work through file sharing. I also have a wired
computer on the network as well. From the wired computer I can see all the
wireless, have access to all of them, and can access files. I can not access
the wired computer from the wireless.

All computers except one are running XP Pro SP2. The other wireless is an
XP Home machine. I have enabled file sharing and all are apart of the same
workgroup. When I try to access the wired computer from the wireless I get
an error that says: "\\backoffice is not accessible. You might not have
permission to use this resource. Contact your administrator to see if you
have permissions. Network path not found.

I have gone through Carey's instructions on all computers. I have also run
the secpol.msc and on the deny access to this computer from the network, I
have removed Everyone from that list. I can not run the secpol.msc from the
XP Home machine. Is there another way to get into that feature? And how do
I get the wireless machines able to access the wired?

Thanks,
David

Unshare everything on the backoffice PC, then re-share one thing and see if
you can access it.

That did not work. I unshared everything from the wired machine, then
rebooted and shared it back. I still can not access from the wireless
machines, but I can access the wireless from the wired.
