Hello, I have just received and setup my new router and
it works great sharing Internet, but I can't get to see
the files in my desktop PC from my laptop, the other way
works fine also!

The message when trying to access files in my PC from my
laptop is that "... the user doesn't have access to the
resource...: login error...". I have tried many
configurations, even those under the Troubleshooting web
page:
> share level permissions
> broadband utility was installed on my laptop
> Virtual DMZ with desktop PC

Both computers are likely configured: XP SP2, Norton A/V,
sharing permissions, etc.
Desktop: connected through cable, broadband utility
installed
Laptop: wifi, no broadband utility installed

Please your help will be very much appreciated because
this was one of the main factors to buy this router,

Juan Fernando

This is a Windows security issue & thus it is a Windows issue.

Well lets look at the name of the newsgroup. It starts with "microsoft"
so that must mean we only talk about Microsoft products. Next it says
"public" so that means any person can post here. Then it says
"broadbandnet" so since this is a Microsoft newsgroup it must be talking
about the Microsoft Broadband Networking. Last but not least it says
"hardware" So that must mean it is the Microsoft hardware for networking
that we talk about.

Thus this is not a general networking newsgroup, but one for the
Microsoft Broadband networking hardware. I'd suggest either posting in
a general networking newsgroup or one for whatever version of Windows
you are running.

How are you so sure it's a Windows security issue ??? I
mean as far as I know Windows' security rights at sharing
level should be working fine, in fact it works fine *one
way* but, strangely, not the other!

When I say "... I just set up my newly MN700 router..."
it's a new hardware, in fact it is a Microsoft Broadband
Product hardware. And it comes with firewall capabilities
that *may* limit folder/file sharing capabilities. I have
done all the MBB troubleshooting web page instructs, with
NO luck.

Finally, I've been trying to work around this problem for
more than six hours alone and I posted this forum very
lately, and the least I wanted to read was an answer
treating me as an ugly spammer!

Thank anyway for your kind response,

Juan, take a look in Help and Support for "home networking." You'll see
several entries under the results in Overview, Articles and Tutorials which
should be helpful for you, including Walkthough: Home networking. You also
probably need to either abandon or program your Norton A/V.

You need to have specific items installed on your connection, in addition to
sharing files and folders, including Client for Microsoft Networks, File and
Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). If
you have them created and the items shared, the anti-virus program is
probably blocking your LAN activity.

Here is the quote of what you said that is screaming Windows security issue.

"... the user doesn't have access to the resource...: login error..."

These errors are both generated by Windows & thus this is a Windows
security issue. It is one or more of the following issues a NTFS
security setting, a share security setting, or a general security setting.

It is still a Windows Security issue. This error is not caused by the
hardware. I think he would be better off asking this question in a
Windows newsgroup because of this.

Chris,

Thanks for you answer, but it is quite strange, in fact
both computers were installed basically the same: same
usernames (my wife and me), same privileges (both
administrators) and no passwords at all.

I have checked both computers again for differences but
I can't find any, except that one can't see other's
shares.

I'm starting to think it has to do with MN-700 wifi
router' firewall capabilities: the only difference I've
found so far would be that desktop PC is in a MN-700's
Virtual DMZ ... (I had to do it because of P2P software)

Thanks again,

Hi Joker,

I take responsibility for what I said, but the idea to
post here was to hear of something known or unknow
regarding the MN-700 "security capabilities", for
instance if you accidentally block shares at the MN-700
firewall you will get, basically, the SAME error!

Again, both computers were installed basically the same:
same usernames (my wife and me), same privileges (both
administrators), no passwords at all, no NTFS (I do not
even get the sharing permissions option, just "share"
and "let others modify share contents").

The only "difference" I've found so far would be that
desktop PC is in a MN-700's Virtual DMZ ... (I had to do
it because of P2P software).

Finally, let me mention that I was certified as MCSE and
worked as network admin/infrastructure specialist/systems
engineer for a long time, so I think I "know" my stuff.

Thanks again,

Disable simple file & printer sharing to see the NTFS permissions on
Windows XP Pro. The only way to disable simple file & printer sharing
on a Windows XP Home computer is to boot into safe mode.

Then you should realize that this is a security error generated by the
operating system & nothing else. (Of course you are a pig headed MCSE
who thinks that the certification really means they are the smartest
person on the planet, when in fact it just means you passed an expensive
test.)

I also forgot it could also be a software firewall or anti-virus program
as well that is causing this error. This is 100% a software issue.

To prove that remember the 7 layers of death. Try pinging the computer
you can't access & having the computer can't access ping the other
computer. The results will tell you that I'm telling you the truth. I
really think you need to stop insisting this is a hardware issue when it
in fact is a Windows issue.

The following link will give you a better idea of what the problem is.

One last thing the firewall is between the WAN port & the LAN connection
for both wired & wireless so information only has to pass through the
firewall if it is to go to the WAN port.

what happens if you give all the computers a static IP (instead of
DHCP) -- setup a static on each using whatever they were last handed
via DHCP.
a. when you do this, can you ping by IP?
b. can you browse network neighborhood and see the other computers?

last step

c. try a hosts file on each computer that has entries like

192.168.2.21 desktop (whatever the computer name is)
192.168.2.22 gamemachine

etc.

what is the experience after you do this?

of master browser elections and contention on home networks. don't

passed MCSE, however I'm proud of it because it was hard
FOR ME. That's why I didn't put it from beginning... in
fact I'm just learning about wifi... Second,
disqualifying other people's achievements doesn't talk
good about you. Just because I do not have or hold
something doesn't mean that thing is bad.

Finally, OF COURSE I agree it is SOFTWARE issue, you
don't need to even mention it, what I do not completely
agree is your definitive diagnostic about Windows fault.
Excuse me for not posting in the MN-700 SOFTWARE forum,
but I just followed a link in the support page.

I have received some kind answers from the WindowsXP
Security forum, as well as from the MS Technical Support,
with some steps to follow at the OS with NO LUCK, one
pending test is to connect both computers directly with a
cross-over cable.

This case is a "simple file sharing", no share or (even
less) NTFS permissions ... however I have already double-
checked those settings and compared one and the other. I
have also installed IPX services, nothing! Again, I have
my doubts about how the MN-700 virtual DMZ: I have my
desktop PC in a VDMZ because of P2P ...

Well, I have an open case in Microsoft Tech for this, so
I hope not to bother you anymore ... maybe when I find
the answer ...

Well the Broadband networking group doesn't have a software only section
since this newsgroup is for the hardware as well as the Broadband
Network Utility.

The error is most likely caused by one or more of the following which
are not a part of the hardware provided by Microsoft hardware but by the
Operating system & third party software.

The causes can be any one or more of the following NTFS security issue,
remote access issues (set by the local security policy on the computer
doing the sharing), firewall software installed on one or both of the
computers, or anti-virus software installed on the computers.

Have you tried pinging the computers to see if the hardware is functioning?

That is a valid test since a ping goes high enough into the hardware
level that if it was the MN-700 you would have similar problems.

I think the three most likely causes are one or more of the following
NTFS security settings (you need to disable simple file & printer
sharing to see what security settings are being applied to the NTFS file
system & thus that are being applied to the share), a software firewall,
or a Windows security setting that doesn't allow the username on her
computer to have network access to your computer.

At this point I'll try to help you further if you post the following.

1) the results of computer 1 pinging computer 2

2) the results of computer 2 pinging computer 1

3) the OS on Computer 1 including which service pack is being used

4) the OS on Computer 1 including which service pack is being used

5) is the username & password the same on both computers?

A little kindness and helpful direction for users goes a long way. The
"Well lets look at the name of the newsgroup . . ." is really tiring.

I am running a networking setup very similar to Juan's.
When I first installed it in June file sharing worked
fine. I realized later that it was no longer functioning
and I was seeing the same messages as Juan. The only
change during that time was installation of SP2 on both
the desktop and the laptop machines. Could this be
related??

Joker, thanks for your latest guidelines, however you
were right rom the start: it seems that it was a problem
in Windows, what I have just done was to REINSTALL the
whole OS, latest antivirus, then connect to the Internet
and finally SP2, now it everything works fine, everything
is on: antivirus, firewall, SP2 (just like my laptop) and
absolutely NO problem.

Thinking about my previous OS installation, I remember a
went through a lot a problems with those worms/viruses
that infected my computer when installing while connected
to the Internet. After a great effort I could "remove"
all those worms, but my computer somehow wasn't working
all right, maybe some damaged files.

Well, again, thank you all who helped me to get the
solution.

Regards,
