All of a sudden my ability to access the other computer on my network is denied.

I get some message about seeing the network adminsistrator to get access to the other computer.

BTW, the other computer can access files on this one.


WTF? Makes me wonder if the kid did something to prevent me from seeing his files over the household network.

Other info, his computer is connected via wireless hookup.

Other wireless connected computers seem to allow me access to thier files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have any firewall software running (Windows firewall, ZoneAlarm, BlackIce, etc.)?

I had a similar situation where one of the computers on my network could access the other, but not vice-versa. On investigating, I had used a very small IP range to allow local connections on one of the original computers on my network. Once there were more computers on the network than that IP range could cover, the original computer wasn't able to see anything that received a higher IP.

I expanded the IP to something large and standard on all of my network machines, and it fixed the problem entirely.

I don't believe that the IP range is the problem. It fairly large.

Thanks
