  1. I have never had a network, and i am lost.

    I have a desktop wired to a D-Link DI-624 router, and my laptop is a wireless D-Link DWL-G650 802.11g.
    Both computers have Windows XP pro.

    I want this network for file transfer.

    I ran the windows Network Setup Wizard on both computers.
    When I try to view the Workgroup Computers, I get an error:

    Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use the network resource.

    I am logged into a user that has admin rights?

    Am I going about this the right way? Maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    I got it working.

    It was a combination of things.

    1. My Network Places / View network connections / local area connection / properties / advance / disable firewall

    2. Nortons / connection wizard / Add network connection

    3. Acouple reboots

    No offence meant, dreck (as in German: das geht dir einen Dreck an?)

    If you care to read my posts anywhere, you will find out that I am more than helpful. Just seeing people come up with the same questions over and over makes me itchy sometimes.

    Anyway, glad you got it going.
