Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M140 Notebook

1 Answer

Networking problem I have a Dell notebook and I'm attempting to share files with a Dell desktop. I have networked the two computers and I'm able to access teh laptop's shared files from the desktop, but I can not do so from the laptop. When I attempt to view workgroup members from the laptop's My Network Places, I get an error message: "Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found." Please advise. Thanks.

Make it sure if the user you used in the laptop is administrator right because you need the administrator right to access some network computer. check also if the desktop share folder is share with full access it maybe the right is read only.

Hi, If you want to share files on both computers, you need to check the shared folders option on both version of the operating system. You can right-click on the folder you want to share then choose properties and choose shared option to check both settings. On windows 7, you have to go to Network and Sharing Center to check the setting on your option. you have to to turn on the sharing options and also if there is a password on both computer when you log on , that would be the username and password you need to share the documents.

Tip

Set up and Use Internet Connection Sharing


Hi,

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.


To configure Internet options on your client computers for Internet Connection Sharing

Open Internet Explorer. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.)

On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

On the Connections tab, click Never dial a connection, and then click LAN Settings.

Good luck!

Unable to access my Laptop on My Network from my Desktop. Desktop connected to D Link DI-524 via LAN Cable and Laptop connected to same router via Wifi. Please provide a solution how to access and share...


To enable file sharing you need to follow the below steps
I moved this to networking for better exposure. I'll give you some basic tips, but it's generally pretty simple.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
Let me know if this will help

My Advent 4211 netbook connects wirelessly to the Internet through my Desktop and a Belkin router. How do I allow the netbook to see the files in the desktop?


if you ran your network wizard to get the internet access shared then you should be able to share your files too.
and folders the same way ,

go to my network device,
veiw network computers,
if you can see the computers desk top then
go to Shared folders and try to see if your folders have been shared open something.

If you can see the desktop and not open the shared folders then run the network wizard again,shutdown and restart,to save your settings,
to share files between both machines you will need to drag the file into my shared folders or rightclick on the file your sharing and click on sharing,follow the prompts to share and that should fix your problem.

Please rate me thanks MISTERDJ

You have to turn printer sharing on in vista by going to your network map and turn the printer sharing on. This should FixYa! Network Map is located in Network and Sharing Center on the computer with vista.

File sharing between computers


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:

On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.

I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com

File Sharing with Home Network...only one pc talking


The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless.
To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks.
Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.

Please post some feedback

Hi there,
You will need to set the drives on the other networked PCs as "shared" before they will be visible on the network. You can do this by right clicking on the drives (while on the other computers) and going into the "sharing" tab. You must enable sharing and then set a name for the drive or folder you want to share. You can either share the entire drive or a specific folder, I recommend limiting the sharing to a specific folder instead of a whole drive for security purposes.

Happy sharing!
