I have a small home network. 2 computers connected by a linksys 4 port router (hardwired). Computer 1 (my computer) runs 2kpro. It is part of the HOME workgroup and is identified that way. My router has DHCP
enabled so my Netbios, addressing, etc is all controlled by that. I can ping myself, Computer 2 (runs XPpro) and the router from both computers. We are both using Client for Microsoft Networks, TCP
and are in the same workgroup. Computer 2: look into Network Neighborhood you see computer 2 and the shared folders and printer (file and printer sharing is enabled). Computer 1: look into Network Neigborhood and you don't see me. If I run a search for my computer (ewvann2kpro) it finds it in the HOME workgroup!
So I click on ewvann2kpro and it shows my shared folders one of which is my downloads (same protocols, clients and file/printer sharing on both computers) and I get this error "\\ewvann\downloads is not accessible. Network path is not found. How do I correct this problem. What could go wrong with a path?
If I click on the folder from my desktop~no problem. I think the problem is with my computer and my network is set up correctly, only I don't know how to fix a path problem... I would appreciate any help you could give me! Sorry for so long a post!
