Wireless file sharing?

8 posts in this topic

I have a pc and a lap top both running windows vista. I can "login" to the laptop from the pc and get whatever files I need to get. If I try to "login" to the pc from the laptop I get an error.

"HAL is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this network (which is me!) to find out if you have access permission. The specified network provider name is invalid.

Any ideas?

Do you have file sharing enabled on both machines?

If not here is the procedure......

To enable file and printer sharing using the Network Setup Wizard,

You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.

Run the Network Setup Wizard.

Click the connection method that applies for your computer.

Accept the default computer description and computer name.

Accept the default workgroup name. This name should match the workgroup name of the other computers that you want to share files with.

On the File and printer sharing page, do one of the following:

To enable file and printer sharing, click Turn on file and printer sharing. Windows Firewall will be configured to allow file and printer sharing on your network.

To disable file and printer sharing, click Turn off file and printer sharing. Windows Firewall will block file and printer sharing on your network. If you currently have shared files or printers, they will no longer be shared.

Complete the rest of the wizard.

Here are a couple ideas.

-Check the firewall settings on the PC. Maybe turn it off and try. If it works then make an exception in the firewall rules.

-Make sure network discovery is turned on for the laptop (Control Panel then Network and Sharing Center)

-Depending upon what version of Vista you have their is a something called Public Folder Sharing that you can turn on also from the above control panel options

The Public Folder when turned on will appear under My Computer

Hope this helps

Try jumping from windows 98 and dial-up to vista and wireless high speed!

Honestly its not that bad and so far fairly trouble free! It took a little wire to get patches for some of my older stuff but everything is smooth right know!

I'll give the suggestion a shot in the morning.

Airjer, I have a patch to fix networking issues in Vista. I can't post the link here, but if you want to email me at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net, I'd be happy to pass it on to you.

    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
