No access to workgroup computers? Tried the usuall

  mojoloko 11:11 27 Nov 05

I have Linksys ADSL router, wi-fi laptop + PC. The PC is conected to the router via ethernet, laptop connects via wi-fi. I've set it up so I can see workgroup computers in network places, I click on it and get a no access available see systems admin. (I am admin) I pinged the PC, and visa versa, and have a good connection. I think I've set up file sharing properly, still no joy. I'm using Asus software to manage the laptop wi-fi connection, with an infrastructure setup. I've setup file sharing in my software firewall, I think I've done this correctly. I think it may be an access permissions issue, but am not sure of this. Am inclined to think there is a conflict somewhere along the line...maybe firewall, maybe ASUS, maybe router, maybe ME..! This is starting to get on my wick, but not fatal..:O)
Looks like it's beat me on this one, I would like some tech help, anyone know a good source? I get lost in the forum, so many prob's from so many angles..!

Once this is licked I think I better post an this a helpfull thing to do?

PS: ASUS uses a Soft AP setting, but am unsure if this is necessary, as I don't need to setup a network bridge..or do I..? See my dilema' many thing to consider..!

Thanks to PC Advisor for offering this platform, came in handy before..:oO -creep
