Sorry to have to ask and bother you guys, but this is harder than I thought
I have already set up my Windows 7 machine such that it is in a home group, but I still can't get my mac to find the files I have shared.
- Main desktop is a Windows 7 home premium 64 bit machine
- I want my newly acquired Macbook Air to view the shared files
- The desktop is connected to the router via LAN while my MBA via Wifi, if this is of any significance
I already have the IP addresses for both computers, and as they're both on 192.168.1.XXX it should mean that they're indeed both connected via the same router, which I thought would've made things easier.
I kept on trying to get my MBA to find my desktop by looking up the desktop's IP address but it doesn't work.
Was wondering if anyone know what I'm doing wrong, thanks so much in advance!!
