wireless can't access wired. But Wired can access wireless

    I am working on a network that 3 of the computers have wireless connections,
    and can see each other and work through file sharing. I also have a wired
    computer on the network as well. From the wired computer I can see all the
    wireless, have access to all of them, and can access files. I can not access
    the wired computer from the wireless.

    All computers except one are running XP Pro SP2. The other wireless is an
    XP Home machine. I have enabled file sharing and all are apart of the same
    workgroup. When I try to access the wired computer from the wireless I get
    an error that says: "\\backoffice is not accessible. You might not have
    permission to use this resource. Contact your administrator to see if you
    have permissions. Network path not found.

    I have gone through Carey's instructions on all computers. I have also run
    the secpol.msc and on the deny access to this computer from the network, I
    have removed Everyone from that list. I can not run the secpol.msc from the
    XP Home machine. Is there another way to get into that feature? And how do
    I get the wireless machines able to access the wired?

    Thanks,
    David

  2. Unshare everything on the backoffice PC, then re-share one thing and see if
    you can access it.

    That did not work. I unshared everything from the wired machine, then
    rebooted and shared it back. I still can not access from the wireless
    machines, but I can access the wireless from the wired.

    Thanks Carey! The problem was the Macafee personal firewall.
