Networking 2 windows xp

Places" although I can see them from both computers. The error message is
\\Downstairs is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions. The network path was not found." This error
message is on both computers. The host computer is a Windows XP Home
operating system and the second computer is a Windows XP Professional
operating system. The 2nd computer is named downstairs and the 1st (host) computer is named upstairs. I get the same error message on both computers; that is, the downstairs computer says "\\Upstairs is not accessible......
I am the administrator and I rebooted both computers and log in as the
administrator. Any suggestions?

I would like to start over. Do you know how I can undo the folders that do show but I cannot access. When I try to right click on the network folder, I get that error message and cannot proceed. I'll like to just undo it all and start over.

Itunes gives no error, and Win gives some "may not have permission..." thing.
Can you help me too?

Do you have any firewall or anything like Norton Internet security?

2- Look at the 'Node Type' it probably says Peer-Peer or something (this is what mine said)
... we want it to say 'Hybrid'
3- Press 'Start' button > Run... > In the box type regedit. This opens your system's registry.
4- Navigate the tree to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/NetBT/Parameters
5- Rt. mouse click and select New > DWORD Value
6- Name it 'NodeType' (without the quotes)
7- Rt. mouse click on it and select Modify
8- Set Value Data to '8' (no quotes)
9- Leave Base alone. 'Hexadecimal' should be selected
10- Press 'ok'
11- Close regedit and reboot. (Your done!)
12- Open dos prompt and type ipconfig -all
For node type it should now say 'Hybrid'
13- Do this to the other computer that you cannot network. Your computers should be able to see one another.
I do not know what 'Hybrid' is, but perhaps some of the network freaks might be able to explain. I have used this on two different occasions and it seems to be the only thing that works.

I'm running a DLink wireless network as well, that was not the problem.

I am having the same problem. I have 2 computers both using XP pro. I have a Linksys WRT54G router. Both computers are accessing the internet okay, but I can't seem to share any files between them. I keep getting the same error that everyone else here is getting.
I tried Ross' fix but that didn't help. My main computer can ping my remote computer, but not vice versa.
