Sorry for keeping you waiting.. i was trying that tutorial .. those two methods did not work.. I'll get back to that in my next post in a few minutes..
My win 7 laptop is both wired and wireless. the XP is only wired. In the past, i could connect to her win xp just fine using both wired or wireless. We get the internet on both machines, me using win 7 with both wired and wireless, and her win xp, using just the wired connection. The router has multiple ports and we both share it.
I actually don't want to share one folder.. but our entire drives and all folders with each other.. in the past, I got it so that i could see and read/write to all of her C drive but she could never read and write to all of my C drive - but we gave up on it and she didn't worry about getting into my drive. It was more important for me to get into her win xp drive, because her hard drive has the larger storage i used a folder under for personal storage space. I had a shortcut to this folder on my desktop, as well as a shortcut to her entire drive C.
Gimme a few minutes and I'll post what happened with the tutorials.
