Windows 7: I Can't make a Windows 7 - Snow Leopard Network

I Can't make a Windows 7 - Snow Leopard Network

Hello. I have that usual problem.

The computers are connected to a wireless router that connects to the Internet. That works fine. But they can't detect each other, not even "see" that there's another device connected in that network. I've tried a lot of workarounds proposed and I still can't get it right. Is there any way to just make them to "see" each other wirelessly and then figure out any access issues?

Thank you in advance.

1st PC : Windows 7 Professional
2nd : Macbook w/ Snow Leopard (latest update)

I made it. I think that it had to do with some file sharing services that were disabled on the windows firewall settings (although the windows firewall was OFF). I enabled every single file sharing service except IPv6 related. I browsed folders from Mac to Win 7 and vice-versa. The only thing is that on the Windows Explorer, under Network, I still don't get the Macbook, it's like it doesn't exist in the network, so I had to map a network drive with my Macbook's hard drive and it's virtually the same thing.

Yes the sharing services on Windows do need to be enabled as you found out. Other than that you need to have the same workgroup name and also enable SMB sharing.

The walkthough I posted also mentioned that it might be safer to use the guest account on the MAC but using the User accounts and passwords should also work.

I can't think of any reason to disable IPv6, certain services do require IPv6 to be functional in order to work properly.
