Can't Files share one way

Had to build a new PC for the wife and for some reason when I try to view her shared files or the Printer in her office I get this.


But her pc can see and d/l my files ../ She connects to the internet with no problem thru the Router as do all the other WiFi junk. and I mean allot of junk...lol
we are running win 7 pro, My PC can't find her Printer either.

Have you created shares and can you connect via IP instead of name?

I checked all 3 pc's and they are all set for sharing. But my office PC is the only one that can be accessed the other 2 ask for passwords.

I got the printer to show up and work on all 3 PC's by resetting the wifi on the printer. But I still can figure out why that only my office PC will share and not the other 2.

If it's asking for a password just enter a username and password for an account on the pc your connecting to. You haven't set the share to everyone

As I understand it, the printer is no longer an issue.

Just to be clear, Password Protected Sharing should be disabled. I didn't mention that in my original post. Figured that would be a no brainer.

Good point samuria.

However, I'm still not clear what he means about his PC will share but the others won't. As I understand it, he still can't see the files on his wife's computer but, she can see the files on his PC. Maybe he will clarify that.

See my first post.

It's under Change Advanced Sharing Settings. My apologies.
