Windows 7: Cannot access Network Drive

Win 7
Cannot access Network Drive

Running Win7 Home Premuim ....running on a laptop wirelessly.
I have 2 network drives one I can access with no problem the other it keeps asking for my password but says it is incorrect. I have a a wired Win XP system that can access both network drives with no problem.
Seems it is something with the accounts and persmissions on the Win 7 system. I have played with all combinations. At a loss...can someone provide some guidance

If the two accounts have same user names but different passwords, make the passwords identical and problem is solved.

I tried making the user names the same and the passwords, and it didn;t work. I will try it again.
