    Just got a Linksys Wireless G and I have the network set up, but it's not letting me access any shared files or drives on any other computer in the network. I've done essentially every troubleshooting suggestion I could find. Anybody have any ideas?

    Sorry for the vague question and shitty phrasing.

    Alright, now the shortcuts are showing up, but it's just the shortcuts. They don't take me to anything.

    Make sure the account you're using to log into the host computer has a password.

    Make sure the Windows Firewall isn't blocking it.

    Do you have the files and folders that you are trying to access set to Shared?
