I have read several posts in forums that address this error message and tried all solutions to no avail.
Here are my troubles. I have three computers all running Windows 7 Home Premium and a Sony PS3 all connected wirelessly to my home network via a Belkin N router. All internet connectivity works fine, all printer connectivity works fine. All of the computers and PS3 can access files through the network and home group with each other fine . . . except for one, My Laptop. My Laptop can access files on all computers in home group and they can all access each others files in homegroup, but none can access the files on My Laptop. Every machine that I try to access the files on My Laptop produces the error message; "you do not have permission to access \\LAPTOP contact your network administrator to request access"
Help Please, I've tried every adjustment that I have read about, assuring proper TCP protoccols, making sure homegroup settings allow access, making sure files are shared, disabling firewalls, disabling Kaspersky, adjusting sharing settings etc etc ad nauseum. Nothing helps.
Please . . . my brain is starting to hurt.
