HAving aproblem connecting to the computers in a home network. I cant seem to connect to the other computers in my home network.
I think the problem is with Norton Internet Security. I say this because When I disable the NIS I can connect to the other computers on the network and accees shared folders on the other computers in the named workgroup.
If I then re enable NIS I cant get to the shared folders on the other computers.
Follow is an error message I get when trying to connect to a computer on the network:
\\\\computername is not accessible.ou might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admisistrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network path was not found."
I installed norton internet security after I had to do a clean install of the system after some major problems. In any case the home network is going screwie.
I have other issues but if I could get this one solved Im hoping the rest will be easy to resolve.
Using a Linksys wireless router model BEFW11S4 v.2 with 4 point switch (4 computers on the net) all hard wired and an occasional wireless guest. Have the wep enabled and mandatory.
Windows XP Media center on 2 computers and windows home edition on 2 others.
As I say when I disable the NIS on the computer I am trying to reach I can connect but not when the NIS is enabled. Im thinking the problem is home where with my setting in NIS.
I have put the trusted IP range in the NIS firewall settings, firewall, networking, trusted zones (home - active) 192.168.1.100 thru 192.168.110. Im thinking the problem may be in the general rules under the advance setting on the NIS. This is where items are blocked or allowed then again heck.... I dont know... help please.
Thanks much..... any and all advise appreciated .. would like to get back to shareing between computers.
Oh ya... folders are shared and changeing files has been allowed when I shared the folders....
Again... any and all advice is appreciated...
