I did everything required for a network, designate a common workgroup name that every computer has and everything. I even went to one of the computers to see if that computer can find my computer as a workgroup computer and it did. What i DON'T see is the shared folders all the other computers have in this new desktop.
My second problem is with my wireless connection. Everytime i startup my computer and login, i get the usual yada yada with the wireless connection, saying it's connected and such. But a few minutes of using the computer later, on the taskbar, it shows a picture saying it is not connected. When i hover my cursor over it, it says it is not connected either. Yet i can use the internet and IM with the exception of MSN which doesn't seem to work. I double-click it and find 2 very weird things:
1. It says not connected in my SSID box.
2. But when i click it, it says if i double-click i will disconnect from the network, which also means I am connected to the network, yet I'm kinda not.
Can someone help me with this? Everytime i buy or get something new it always comes ready with faults. Even my old computer which my brother is using now works better when he's using it in his room. Technology hates me....
UPDATE: Also, i just noticed that everytime after awhile of the ugly X on the wireless connection it will disconnect itself and reconnect after i repair it, but repairing will always stop at "Connnecting to wireless network" even though i can use the internet. This is getting weirder....
