  1. Hi,

    This one is strange. I no computer can access another one through the net. But, if I go to \\ I can get in to the shares. But not by the computer name or the my network places folder.

    It's 3 computers running windows xp pro.

    The error i'm getting is:

    "You don have access to computername. Maybe you don't have permission to use this network resource.

    Route to host not found"

    This doesn't happen when I type in the ip address directly.

    Please tell us more about your network configuration, including installed protocols and TCP/IP settings.

    Sorry :p

    Network Client for Microsoft Networks
    Printer and File Sharing for Microsoft Networks
    TCP/IP Protocol, static Ip adresses

    All computers have the same protocols installed.
    They are in the same workgroup.
    I have a 3com hub.

    That's the basic... All the computers have a password set.
