Network Problem

How do I solve this error?
\\M-Laptop is not accessible.Your might not have permission to use this net workwork resource. Contact the admin.. of this server to find out if you have access permission.

I can see both computers but can't access?

IE, Window 7

Thanks,

go into network and sharing center on each computer, over on the left top you will see Change Advanced Sharing settings, turn off password protected sharing. Right clik on the folder or drive you wish to share and set sharing to everyone, full control....reboot both computers, you should be able to access the folder now.

Just passing through but if you are running homegroup for networking it requires a password.

Still haven't solved this problem.
System info: 32 bit, Window 7 Home premium

Trying to network my two computers, has I mentioned before I can see both computers on network.

Getting error message I need to enable IPV6 on my laptop, I have followed all instruction to enable however it doesn't work.

Is there a better way to network my two computers and share files?

Thank you,
Margie

There are tutorials on this forum that show you how to create a workgroup or a "homegroup" which is a Win 7 feature that are actually different from each other in how they are setup. That might help you better. But if you want more help this way you need to tell us how all networking is physically connected. Router, PC, Laptop, modem, etc.

Scroll through till you see what's relevant to your issue. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/?filter[2]=Networking%20Internet

Go to your Control Panel->Homegroup. Are any of the options checked off?
Also if you can look at the settings in Network and Sharing Center->Advanced sharing settings and post a screen shot.
You can post a screen shot of the single window by using tool called "snipping tool" in the start menu->accessories folder.
