Hi there - great forum!
I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I haven't managed to find out the solution from existing threads or tutorials.
I have WinXP on my desktop (let's call it DESKTOP) and Windows 7 on my laptop (let's call it LAPTOP). I have given both machines a workgroup name (let's call it HOME).
So, I connected LAPTOP to the same router as DESKTOP and, hey presto, I have internet access on both. So far, so good!
Due to luck or skill, not sure which, I am able to access any LAPTOP files I mark as shared on my DESKTOP. However, I can't seem to connect to my DESKTOP from my LAPTOP. So, I can see stuff from the Windows 7 machine on my WinXP machine but not the other way around.
As my username suggests, I'm not very technical so any simple guidance will be very gratefully received
