Windows 7: I messed up my network. Please help.

Everything now is on the workgroup. From the desktop, I can see the laptop's document's folder and even add to them. From laptop, I can see desktop's document's folder, but it appears empty. Also, when I accessed the laptop from the desktop, I had to enter a laptop userid & password. When I tried to access desktop from laptop, I wasn't prompted for any credentials. Do I have something on the desktop not set correctly? Everything is set to share everything.

I last reported I could see the contents of my laptop from my desktop. Yesterday, I took the laptop out of the range of my network. Now that it's back in range, I no longer see the laptop. Do I need to auto-detect it?

Hello again. Still stuck. Under network on the desktop, I just see desktop. Under network on the laptop, it lists desktop & laptop. The laptop doesn't see anything on the desktop however. What should I do?
