I have two machines, a laptop with Windows 7 RC Ultimate (32bit) and a desktop with Windows 7 Pro (32bit). Together, they have a nice little HOMEGROUP network. The laptop can print from the shared printer, and both transfer files easily.
The problem: my roommate has a MacBook Pro (from 2008) running Leopard OS...we'd prefer to have a shared network instead of having to use flash drives, etc, to transfer files over. How do I get that thing to access my HOMEGROUP network? It detects the wireless network and uses that for internet access, but doesn't detect HOMEGROUP or the printer on that network.
Additionally, the MacBook Pro repeatedly tries to connect to an old wireless network that we no longer use, despite me (trying) setting all of its network preferences to our current router's wireless network. Any suggestions? I know I found a forum piece (on this forum?) about this problem a while ago when I first tried to solve it, but it just got quite confusing and didn't help much.
Any help is appreciated, thank you!
