Cannot access shared folder on network using tplink wireless adapter

0

I have a domain controller for 20 lan pcs using windows xp and on it a share folder accessible through \102.168.0.12\myfolder. LAN ip ranges from 192.168.0.100 - 120 Next I have a Cisco linksys router configured using ip, 192.168.1.1 , dhcp enabled Now I have 5 Pc's with Tplink wireless network adapter installed and connected using my router's connection and getting ip's from the router Problem is I cannot access my shared folder when I enter \192.168.0.12\myfolder. I disable firewall in the pc's and anti-virus and it connects but keeps disconnecting every 3 minutes or so with a "Windows cannot access \Myfolder... etc etc" No network path was found with an "Error Code 0x80004005 Unspecified error". Pls help I need to resolve this ASAP

Your router has DHCP server on 192.168.1.1 shared folder is on 192.168.0.1 IF your pc U use to access folder uses different IP range , this can be the source of your issues.
