I have a linksys adsl modem and belkin 8230 mimo wireless router. This is being run with a desktop (ethernet connection) and two laptop pc's wireless connection. I have set up the internet connection without too much difficulty but file and printer sharing is another matter.

I have followed the advice on this website for simple file sharing and discovered that the PC's will ping each other with the firewalls switched off (windows and McAfee). But when typing the nbtstat -n command I get the message on one of the laptops

Failed to access NetBT driver -- NetBT may not be loaded.

How do I load this? Or is it not not the cause of my problems.

Any advice help most gratefully received
