Angry Network Help PLEASE !!!!!!

Hi Everybody!

I wonder if anybody else has had this problem?

I run a home wireless network and have enabled file sharing on my chosen files. The problem is that I cannot open some if those files, even though they are shared files/folders and they appear on my "network places"

My network is my main PC, plugged into a netgear wirless networking device. My laptop is the other PC, which picks up the wireless signal. I can open some files/folders and even use the printers withWiFi, but it's just some of the files I have the problem with.
I am running XP pro on both machines.

I have to administrators logging onto my main PC, but there is no log on the laptop.

Any Ideas?

Many Thanks {:@>

Hi Patsy,

I have a netgear wireless router MR814 V2

There is sofeware with it, I shall have a look.
This is a very strange problem because the IP addresses are OK and I can open some other files/folders in "my network places"

Hi Patsy,

No, the software is only for setting up IP address and internet connection
