Windows 7: Really weird problem

Really weird problem

Hi,

So I have a new netbook, and it is on Windows 7. I connected it to my wireless home network. I then tried to transfer files from my Vista Laptop to this netbook wirelessly.

From files with sizes ranging from 1-300MB, they transfer fine. Whereas anything bigger results in an error saying "There is a problem accessing 'file name' "

I am not sure whether this is to do with the Netbook or the windows compatibility. I have switched off all firewalls.

Any help appreciated

Thnks

So far, the only thing that has had an effect on this type of problem is to adjust the routers settings to work with your network or update the routers firmware.

The link below from last week shows how another person fixed the issue but they didn't mention which router settings were involved.
