The pc your trying to connect to must have a password, unless you change your wireless adapter advanced settings.

Core7, open 'Task Manager' on the pc your trying to connect to and look in 'Users' tab, it will show your username.

username
password

is not the same as

computername\username
password

That said you may have to add the username of your W7 credential to the permission/security section of your shared C:\

Does it work the other from XP to W7?
