Windows 7: Problem logging on to a network

Problem logging on to a network

I am having a problem accessing my work network using windows 7 64 bit. The computer that I am trying to connect with is a windows 2000 machine. It keeps saying that I have invalid credentials, when I know the credentials are right. A friends xp machine logs on to the network and so does his vista machine. Thanks in advance for any help!

Windows 7 64bit

The host machine is the w2k. The 64 bit win 7 is able to see the win2k machine. The credentals from the win 7 are rejected and I am quite certain they don't even make it to the win2k machine for verification. I think the encryption protocols are different. I am able to ping the w2k machine and use the w2k machine as the gateway to the Internet. I can access the Internet just fine. The network is mapped as such. W2k host the wireless router and the win 7 laptop is trying to use the w2k for printer sharing through the wireless. The network only consist of those two computers.

OK, well since the guy who usually takes care of our network has left the company, I have been thrust rather abruptly into this position. I'm fairly computer savvy, but I've never done much network administration. So I've been upgrading a few computers to Windows 7 Ultimate and after a fair bit...
