Thanks in advance
My client has a PC and Notebook (bothWinXp SP2) conneted AD-Hoc via 2xUSB WG111T WiFi adapters.
The adapters are installed and functional. The PC can ping itself and the Notebook but in View Workgroup only the PC itself shows up. The Notebook cannot ping the PC and in View Workgroup only the Notebook itself shows up. Both computers have the same user a/c and pwd.
Sometimes both PC and Notebook both show up on the Notebooks View Workgroup but when I try to access shared files I receive the following error: "... is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the network administrator ... the network path was not found"
I have performed the following checklist
Is the Wireless network installed and running? YES all green lights
Is the signal strength good on both machines? YES
Do both m/c have same user name & pwd? YES
Are both machines using the same subnet? Ie. 169.254.xxx.xxx YES
Set workgroup as "WORKGROUP" YES
For Pier to Pier wireless must be set to Ad-Hoc YES both
Firewall on both machines setup for trusted IP's YES
Both machines see themselves in View Workgroup Computers YES
PC with firewall off can ping itself and the Notebook YES
Notebook with firewall off cannot ping itself and the PC
Both machines are set to NETBIOS over TCP/IP
Under user rights assignment add "everyone" to "access this computer from the network" YES
