Re: Annoying Problem with Wireless Network
This is a really annoying problem that i have had many times too. It seems that different build versions of XP has different default sharing permissions and i can't find out how to completely manipulate them (the sharing properties and permissions doesn't change it). I had this problem the other day. I have a desktop that is running a certain build version of XP and when i set any folder to share, all other network computers can see it but you're prompted for the username and password to view. The laptop, which is wireless, gives you a login box too for a share folder but it defaults to the "guest" account as the login name and will not let you change it. My guest account isnt even active. I cannot remember how the heck to fix this. Any ideas?
