Let me begin by thanking anyone who can shed any light at all on my networking problem. I have a typical wireless network with the Linksys WRT54G as the gateway/router. I'm able to have nice internet connections on all computers, and can even share some files, but the majority will not share. For example: I have two folders on each computer named "schematics", and they are shared with read and write privileges. The folder on the remote computer contains several files, but for the sake of the discussion one is named bilevel.gif and the other bmeter1.gif. I can copy the first file to the remote computer, but the second throws an error message stating, "Cannot copy bmeter1: Access is denied. Make sure disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." The disk is far from full and not write-protected, nor is the file in use.
I do not believe that the wireless equipment is at fault, as some files will transfer, and others will not. The same thing happens on a Windows Me computer sometimes connected to the computer, but let's not complicate things now. I have legal copies of Windows XP Professional with SP1a and all later patches applied. I do not use SP2, as it is not compatible with the motherboard on this P3 system.
Any input appreciated. Thank you!
