Default need help networking computers!!!

hey i have been trying to network my computers for about an hour and the computer that is directly connected to the router wont let me access its printers or anything else is says "you might not have permission to access this resource" but on the computer that is connected to the router i have allowed printer sharing and filesharing and it still gives me that message.

any ideas or tutorials thanx.

It is almost always caused by it being blocked by windows firewall or some third party firewall (like McAfee). Try turning all your firewalls off (not the router firewall) and see if it works. Another thing I've noticed is windows' icons under My Network Places don't always update quickly. Try just entering in the IP of the node you're trying to access like this:

\\192.168.x.x

Sometimes directly requesting it works better.
