Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
I have a laptop and a desktop set up on a home network. Both use Windows XP. Both can currently connect to the internet using a wireless broadband router. After running the Network Wizard on both computers, I can see the desktop on the laptop but I can not open it to view the files. However, I can see and access the laptop from the desktop with no problems. Please advise as to how I can resolve this issue.
Also, when I turn on my laptop I get a message that says my network cable is unplugged. Does this have anything to do with the issue. Again, I am working all this wirelessly.
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
