[access-uk] Re: wireless network frustrations!

hi all, think i should clarify a point or two, smile. i've got no problem 
getting the laptop online. in the list of wireless networks within range the 
one i created when getting the desktop online,we'll call it kevin for sake 
of this explanation. so i ask the laptop to find networks in range, and 
kevin shows up, i put in the security key and off we go. the problem i'm 
having is i cannot get the two machines to see each other. i've tried 
running the network set up thing, but it seems to only want me to create a 
network, which i already have. logically to my mind (and probably wrongly 
smile) i'd have thought there'd be an option to find a list of computers on 
a particular network once connected to it and then be able to allow or deny 
access between them. i can't find such an option or anything similar. now 
i'm probably missing something very obvious! hence my trying to find a 
step-by-step guide, with no luck so far.
i'm a complete novice when it comes to networking, so i don't know settings 
wise, what should be visible to another machine, and what shouldn't.

Kevin, Just to add to what other people have said. I found that when
attempting to network a desktop and a laptop using Norton Internet Security
I was completely unable to access files and folders with NIS running. If you
run through the network wizard and find you are unable to access the folders
you have selected to share try turning off the firewalls just to make sure
everything is sharing correctly.

Also you didn't mention if you had any other security settings than the key.
If you have your SSID hidden you will either need to type it in to the
laptop when trying to connect to the wireless access point or disable that
feature in the settings of the access point.
Good lukc
Yusuf
