    Wireless Networking doesn't work, wired does windows xp

    Running windows xp on my laptop wireless to router. Today it does not
    work. I can connect to the internet get emails and browse, but my shares
    can't be seen by my other computers nor can I see other computer shares.
    If I cable directly to the router then it works. I'm at a loss as to what
    to look for that is not letting the shares through when connecting
    wirelessly. Nothing I've Googled seem to apply here. I've done no program
    updates nor system updates. This is a Gateway laptop with built in Wifi, no
    card.

    I would appreciate your suggestions in locating what is prohibiting
    wireless networking.


    TIA.

    found the problem.

    I forgot that I did install Kaspersky antivirus the day before, but did not
    attempt share operation.

    Kaspersky firewall was blocking the wireless connection.

    Went into the

    settings>firewall>Settings>networks, right click on the entry itself and
    seleting local fixed the problem.
