I have a three PC network configured as follows. Two PC's are Ethernet connected to a Netgear WGR614 wireless router. The router is connected through a cable modem to the Internet. I also have a notebook running a wireless connection to the router. The notebook and one of the PC's are running Windows 2000 Professional and the other PC is running Windows
- All machines are set up in the same Workgroup and all have shared disks. My problem is that I cannot see either of the PC's from the notebook although I can get to the Internet. I can also access shared disks from one hardwired PC to the other.
I did an experiment today by hooking the notebook up to the router using an Ethernet cable (eliminating the wireless connection). In this case I was able to see and access shared disks on both PC's from the notebook, and from either PC to the notebook. I would assume that this means the Windows 2000 machines are properly set up.
Previously I had a problem accessing a shared printer on the 2000 machine from the 98 machine and someone suggested that I make sure that I had the user on the 98 machine in the user group on the 2000 machine. I made sure all users are setup on all machines.
I hope someone can suggest what I could do to clear up the problem with the notebook. Thanks for your help.
