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.

    • Thanks to Ufatz, I didn't have to make a wasted trip to my mailbox today...
    • YES, they DO shut down if not enough oxygen. Been dealing with that one for almost 15  years of teaching this. They DO NOT have a CO shutoff, that's what I'm trying to hammer into peoples heads. That's what all thermocouples do, shut the gas valve.  A thermocouple is a safety device for some gas appliances. One end of the thermocouple is heated by a pilot flame, and the other end is connected to a gas valve. As long as the pilot light stays lit, the thermocouple holds the gas valve open and lets gas flow to the main burner of the appliance. The sensor on the end of the thermocouple is heated by the flame of the pilot light. The heat generated is converted into micro volts of electricity. This Electricity is enough to open a tiny magnet in the gas valve, and allow the gas to flow. If the pilot light was to blow out, then the sensor on the Thermocouple cools, and then closes the gas valve to the burner. This ensures that when the pilot flame goes out, Gas cannot escape from the pilot. It is automatically shut down.  That's how it works....if there isn't enough O to support the pilot, you might as well hang it up. They've been petitioned to remove their "low oxygen shut off" from their labeling. Best they did was re-word it. 
    • I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end.  I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
    • Do buddy heaters even have a low oxygen / CO shut off?  My understanding is they have a thermocouple that kills the gas flow if it's not lit, but it will burn as long as there is a pilot light and enough O2 for combustion, which is probably less O2 than what it would take to make you feel like dump.  And even if O2 levels are high, CO can still be off the chart.   Do people get a lot of alarms going off?  Seems like there is going to be CO in my porty just from the buddy heater going even if the conc is well below a danger level.  I figured those things were calibrated for use in places like your house which should be right at about 0ppm, unless it's right next to the furnace.   In a related story, my MIL was house sitting for a friend when the CO detector went off.  She opened some windows and went outside but started getting a headache, naseous, light headed, weak, dizzy, all sorts of symptoms.  Called 911.  Fire department rolled out, ambulance sent.... And the detector was alarming because the battery was almost dead.  CO levels were at 0ppm.    
    • I'll wait patiently on memorial day, veteran's day, the 4th of July, 9/11, Xmas, new years, labor day, or any of the other federally recognized holidays for you to throw up another post with no point.
    • Thinking about building a new Fish House.   Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing?   Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
    • Did you ever weigh the house?
    • Thanks for the reminder.  The trash goes to the road tonight for tomorrow's pick up.  I'll drag it down the driveway on my way to the lake.    
    • Had to bring the wife back last night anyway but a 3 day run woulda been nice.  I got to play with and feed our granddaughter, get ice gear thawed out and recharge batteries, making lunch and gonna head out for the evening bite.   I have a dream!
    • Thanks Rebelss. You just can't emphasize the importance of a C/O alarm especially with the new fish  houses being built so tight. My service man just ran into a B/O furnace on a no heat after hours call.  Home owner was very lucky and of course no alarm.
