Have you tried connecting without firewall, and or password. Browser and copy may be ok on one port and backup maynot on another.
Could we get some more info ab the networking setup, ie wep/wpa, shares, etc.
Hope this helps
Thanks for the suggestions.
I disabled the Firewall and I still get the same problem I'm afraid.
Both Laptops use WPA-Personal (TKIP).
I have a J: Drive on the Desktop which was shared simply by right-clicking and then Share with Homegroup (Read/Write).
