I have a desktop, a Linksys WRT54G router, and a wirelessly connected
computer for my home network.
On the desktop on the left side of Windows Explorer, in My Network Places, I
can see My Network Places->Entire Network->Microsoft Windows
Network->Mshome->Claudette, and then shared folders, as well as Printers and
Faxes under Claudette (my wife's laptop name). This looks great to me -- it
looks like I can see everything.
However, on my wife's laptop, I can only see My Network Places->Entire
Network->Microsoft Windows Network->Mshome. I can't see anything under
Mshome on the left side of Windows Explorer, but on the right side I see
"compaq centrino laptop (Claudette)" (with Mshome selected on the left side)??
I can see shared folders on both computers at a higher level in the chain.
What should I be seeing. Shouldn't I be able to see my desktop Ron computer
(under Mshome) on my wife's laptop, as well as the shared folders and the
Printers and Faxes, on my wife's laptop -- much the same as the information
that I can see on my computer (about her laptop).
I am getting close, I can tell -- but what is the likely problem here
preventing me from seeing everything about my computer, on my wife's laptop
-- as I do on my desktop.
