Re: Not able to see shared folders
Linked to my problem, are 3 queries which might help in resolving this issue
1) Everytime I try to connect to the other laptop whose IP address is
192.168.1.1( is this the host or client machine?), with one with...1.2( this
one has the shared folder which I want to access) I always get a prompt(
though while sharing I had disabled password sharing) and the username and
the password is the one for Wi-Fi Router! Now this is a bit confusing, why
do I have to put the password for router when I am trying to access them
through a Lan cable?
2) Both have the same version of McAfee installed, yet in McAfee Security
Center>Manage Network, they show the other laptop status as unknown and ask
me to install the software there? Is this McAfee problem?
3) When I connect them both by the LAN cable, although the system with IP
192.168.1.1 shows connected to Internet, it keeps on saying I am not
connected to internet if I try to open any site in IE. This keeps on
happening even after removing the cable Till I change the IP settings for
LAN network to detect IP address automatically. I guess here its IP conflict
that is happening, but then why is this conflict on the other laptop?
