Default Home networking

I've had a workgroup working for quite a while and sometimes I was unable to
connect to shared pcs completely or some shared folders.

I have everyone, wired and wireless, all on the same workgroup and obviously
can see all the shares but I get this error message:

\\xxxxx\(d) is not accessible. you might not have permission....

I've searched for days for a solution. Some shares work and some don't.

I'm using simple file sharing, DHCP on everything and

Under tcp/ippropertiesadvancedwins

I have tried both default netbios setting (get from DHCP server) and forced
Enable netbios

I've disabled all firewalls and am pulling my hair out. For example,
desktop #1 can see all the shares on my laptop and connect, but the LT
cannot connect to the desktop. Obviously something is wrong.

Any pc will respond to a ping with or without firewall.

I've tried removing all the shares and starting over, no joy.

I've read every thread, forum and KB possible and this is driving me nuts. I
need to store and move files reliably.

Is there a sure cure solution?
