    Hi,
    I went through numerous similar threads, but unfortunately none had the problem I am facing.

    I have a desktop and a laptop computer connected to the Internet over an ADSL router-modem.

    The laptop is running Windows 7 Enterprise and the desktop is running Windows 7 Ultimate.

    when clicking the Start -> Network button on my laptop, I can see my desktop and access it, but unfortunately I can't do it the other way arround.

    both computers have full access to the internet and I have already tried connecting them through wireless and cable with no effect.


    thanks,

    Are you talking about using Remote Desktop?

    Are you running a Homegroup?

    Do you have anything shared on the laptop?

    Could any firewall be blocking the access?

    I do not run Enterprise, so could anything there be blocking the access?

    Can you see the laptop in the Network and Sharing Center if you run a full map?

    I have the same problem.
    Windows Seven Ultimate in desktop and notebook connected to the Internet over an ADSL router-modem.
    On the notebook I can access the internet and the folders of PC.
    On PC I can see the two computers on network but when I click to access I receive the error '\\computer is not accessible'
    I've tried eveything and nothing change.
