File sharing on a wireless network

  acrobat270 22:08 04 Sep 03

Ok, I have a wireless network (PC & Laptop) both win xp. Have been using briefcases to synchronise with no probs but today fired up both machines and when I go to my network places the laptop is not showing any more. Checked view workgroup computers and the window freezes and stops rersponding. Why?????

Checked both computers are still on the same work group. IP addresses the same. Can ping the laptop from the pc but when I try to ping the pc from the laptop the requests time out????

Any ideas?

i suspect you havnt got ' client for microsoft networks' installed on the laptop which is why no service is gven by the pc.
