have 2 PC's on a wireless network - a laptop with Win XP home and a desktop with Win XP pro. Both PC's can see each other on the network under "view workgroup computers". The Desktop can access the Laptop's shares but the laptop cannot access the desktops shares - I get the above error message.

Have tried:

- Only one transport protocol installed, namely TCP/IP
- NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled in WINS
- Uninstalled third party client software
- Repaired the IP stack
