Hello All: I have a wireless router that is wired to one computer with
xp on it and connects wireless to a laptop that's running Vista.
Connects fine - both access internet no problems. The problem is with
sharing files between the two comps. I thought that it was xp not
talking to Vista so I took the laptop to the router and wired it up and
both machines can see and share and copy back and forth. Same thing when
both are connected wireless to the router. But when the Vista machine is
connected wireless it can see the xp machine when wired (in an explorer
window), can see the folders that are shared, but can only open the
Windows shares, not the data folders I want to share. It won't copy
anything from xp to Vista. From xp I can see and open and change text
files, but if I try to copy anything large (300megs) it gives a 'network
location is no longer available' error. I used to do this with two xp
machines and the same router (Comtrend) with exact same configuration.
But since I have the Vista machine wireless it won't work. Do I have a
router config. or network card config problem? I don't know enough to
troubleshoot this, I fiddle with configs. but so far haven't got
anywhere. Could someone offer some ideas, please?
