I put in the settting on both pc's to have it password protected as there are other people on the network. Vista has a password and the brief time the 2 pc's saw each other I was able to get into my laptop (vista32 bit) files from my win7 desktop but I have not put a password on the win 7 desktop yet. I would prefer no password but then others on the network could get into my files right? As of right now neither pc is seeing each other.

Good morning.
I know nothing about D Link routers so here's how I setup my Laptop on my router.
I wire connected Laptop to my Netgear DGN2000, accessed the setup page, changed the SSID and set a password for WPA2. I then went to the wireless settings, and added my Laptop's MAC address to the trusted list of the Access Control setting.

Have a look at this screenshot, in particular the information on password-protected sharing.

Neither pc can see each other again and what is even stranger on my win 7 I have 2 computers listed mine with all the files and Owner-pc which has a password on it, says domain is listed as my win7. I'm gonna turn off the password and see what that is. My laptop is not listed on the win 7 & win7 is not listed on the laptop.
