I just set up my home network through a linksys wrt54g router, with two computers (office comp running XP Pro, living room comp running XP Home, both using the onboard NIC cards, I completely removed my software firewall, to be reinstalled when I get everything running), everything works great from the computer in my office I can read/write files to my other computer. On my other computer (Living Room) under My Network Places I can only see the shared files of that machine and under View Workgroup Computers it lists both machines (office and living room) I can double click and go on the living room computer fine, but when I click to go on my office machine I get this message:

//My_Office is not accessiable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrater of this server to find out if you have access permission.

Access Denied

then all can do is click OK

How do I set up permissions so this computer can access my office computer, thanks for the help

Easiest fix is to run the "Set up a Home or Small OFfice Network" Wizard in My Network Places on both machines. That will sort out 90% of networking problems. If that does not fix it . . look at this for hints.

Hope this helps . . wrs

Make sure you have an account on the machine that won't grant you access that matches the name/password of the machine you're connecting with.

So do I add an User Account to the Machine I am having trouble connecting to with the same name and password as the other computer? Also do I need to do anything with Manage My Network Passwords? Thanks for all the Help guys

On the XP Pro computer you add a user that matches the username and password used to log in to the XP home computer.
