    i got pretty much the same setup got a hub in the back seat connected to a nic shared to netgear 802.11b pci card.

    I had to enable guest account on the carputer so other pc's on the hub can see and access my shared folders.

    those are both good suggestions - i forgot about the firewall function in XP.....i'm not so sure about enabling the guest account - but, windows networking always has been smoke and mirrors....

    2. click "administrative Tools"
    3. click "Computer Management"
    4. under "System Tools" click "Local Users and groups"
    5. now click on the "Users" folder

    thanks for the input guys, but it looks like i'm still stuck with the same problem.
    I tried the guest account thing
    and the xp firewall,
    but still no luck.

    remember, the problem is that i cant get into the shared folders of my home computers when i'm using my carputer. Everything else is fine

    Total = $746....Carputer = Priceless

    that's really strange, as i haven't had any problems networking XP....

    it really sounds like some sort of permissions issue with user accounts, that's the typical problem with this type of issue...

    did you try making a new share to see if you could access that at all?

    Dear o dear, the age old NTFS permissions problem, y o y do noobs always say yes to have their files hidden from other users?!

    hehe, anyways, u need to basically give everyone (or select users if you have an open network) permission to the files through NTFS, not through sharing as it sounds you have already done that.

    You need to disable simple file sharing:
    in explorer: tools, folder options, view, scroll to bottom, uncheck

    Then right click on the folder you are tying to share, go to permissions, advanced (i think) and you need to add user: Everyone to the list of users who are able to access the folder (make sure you do it recursively as well).

    Should do the trick, HTH.

    Without more information this is the best I can do from here.

    The simplest way to fix this is to create a new user on all of the computers that has the SAME Username and Password. They also need to be part of the Administrators group. This should fix your problem, if not tell me.

    ah apologies, havent used home much. i may be wrong but can you change ntfs permissions w/o it then? even XP Home should have some facility to manually edit ntfs permission values.
