    Ok so here is my weird issues, n i do not kno how to fix it or what to do anymore. I have 4 computers in my house, 2 desktop and 2 laptops. My main desktop which is connected to the Wireless Router thru cable is a Vista x64, all others are connected by wireless connection. And all others are XP.

    In my Vista, when i go to Computer>Right Click>Properties, it will tell me that my Workgroup and Computer Description are not available. However when i click on change settings, they are there. When i click on my Network, i can see my Laptops, their sharing folders, and even the other desktop, and yes my computer has folders already share and that includes my printer. But when i click on the Main desktop it tells me that i dont have permission.

    So when the laptops or desktop try to print from the only printer they just cant. I have turned off all Antivirus and IS, do kno that this problem just started to happened about a month ago, it has been great for the past 1yrs with no problem. So again, i can connect to all other computers within my Vista, i click on them and i can go in and do whatever, but they cant connect to me, or better yet wont let them. My Vista Computer Properties says that nothing is available but during Change Settings all that is needed is there, and no matter how many times i restart the computer it still the same.

    Any ideas?
