Network icons.

Posted: 02-21-2009, 01:57 PM
We have three computers here. One is a laptop with XP/3 (Mobile). One
is a laptop with Vista/1 (Jean-PC). One is a desktop/tower with XP/3
(PETER).

All three are on a wireless home network. All three can access the
Internet and e-mail. In all three I want to share folders and files if
possible. Also share printers but that is another issue right now.

Currently each laptop computer (JEAN-PC and MOBILE) can "see" the
other two but the desktop/tower (PETER) does not see MOBILE.

Also, if I try to access Mobile from the Vista (JEAN-PC) I receive an
error message; "Windows cannot access \\MOBILE. "Diagnose" does not
reveal any network problems. Also if I try to access folders in PETER
from JEAN-PC I receive the same error.

I have tried changing the name of MOBILE to something different with
no improvement. Right now I have changed the name back to MOBILE.

Overall the problem appears to be the name MOBILE. However I have not
tried all the possible combinations and more may show up. How can I
resolve this name problem?

Many thanks,

Peter

Try these:

1. Make sure you have assigned permission in Security tab.
2. It could be 3rd party security software. For troubleshooting, try clean
boot.
3. Make sure you enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

These search results may help too.
