I have a desktop running windows 7 64 bit with a printer attached (HP PSC 750) another desktop running XP 32 bit, and an Acer Aspire One netbook running Win 7 32 bit. All networked through a belkin 54G wireless router.
The Win 7 64 bit desktop and the XP communicate flawlessly, sharing files and the printer. The netbook on the other hand can't do anything. All PCs show up on the network map correctly. From the 64 bit and the XP machines I can access the netbooks public folders. When on the netbook I cannot access any of the PCs on the network and cannot find the printer. When I open the network page with the three icons for each pc and click on any one of them, I get an access denied message. Including the netbook's own icon.???
And I thought the XP machine was going to give me headaches. So is it my router, the netbook, am I missing something in the network settings? Perhaps there are known issues networking a 32 and 64 bit machine, I don't know. please help before I pull out all of my remaining hair.
