we have a Compact Wireless G broadband router at work.

It is currently plugged in our network closet directly into the port.
on the back there is 4 ethernet ports and 1 port that says Internet.
I have it plugged from the internet port into one of the many network ports on the rack in the closet.

We have a laptop currently accessing it. IP of 192.168.100
I can access internet, and network printers no problem.

When i click on the my network places icon to access our network group, it shows the icon with the 3 computers in a circle. when i click it, it will not give me access to the network to see other computers and folders etc....

I get you do not have permission to use this resource. contact the administrator etc..... etc...

Anyone know how to fix this?? is there some setting i am missing somewhere?

Generally when you start connecting router into router you can go out but have problems making bends.

Turn off the NAT firewall in the router. If your router has a mode to act like a switch/or hub use it. This way the DHCP will be controlled with the upstream switch. Some have a mode that puts the wireless on its on private subnet, not needed in your case.
