Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
Hello I was hoping to network my two pcs together but I have a problem the one on wireless will let me look at the files on the one that is cable but the one on cable wont let me look at the wireless one said this
(server is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permissions.
then it says The network path we not found)
But im the administrator I have check all the network setting they are fine has the same workgroup and everything i dont understand why it wont let me because if I plug a cable in i can access it but thats a pain as have to keep moving router closer
is it because ones on wireless and ones on cable
Hi, First let me say it could be several things so you need to be patient with the answers, since we don't have all of your info. Sounds like the file sharing is not enabled on the wireless one but if you want to share between them check them both. A word of caution before proceeding is file sharing between computers connected to a router may allow the files to be viewed by others. OK assuming you have xp or vista, in the control panel under network settings you will have file sharing on the menu in vista and xp will have lan, local or wireless settings pick the one you are using and right click properties, and make sure that the box is checked for file and printer sharing for microsoft networks. You didn't say what type of wireless you are using but the same settings apply to your router, you have to enable file sharing over wireless make sure you encrypt it or you will be at risk. Good Luck!

What version of windows are you running? Also, are you saying that if they are both on a wired connection that you can access each?
If that is the case then I would suggest to you that the problem is in the one with the wireless connection specifically in the wireless software that you are using. In most wireless configurations it will let you select whether the network you are connected to is Home, Work, or Public. If the connection is selected as Public it will deny sharing. You can either delete the auto connection for the wireless connection and then readd it using a friendlier configuration or you can try to modify the connection through the use of the software. I would recommend deleting the account and using the wizard first.
Hope this helps.
