2 PC's and 1 Wireless

  pipfan 15:30 10 Dec 2010

Hope someone can help with this one.

I have 2 PC's at home, one running wireless via a D-Link wireless router and one connected to the router by cable. The wireless PC is running XP whilst the other one is on Vista.

Is there any way I can access files stored on one PC from the other (specifically I'm thinking about pictures) or do I have to physically load them on to each PC's hard drive ?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

Thanks again

Use the XP Network Wizard in Control Panel and create a disc when it asks you to. All Hardware should be turned on before Running the Wizard, that means both PC's and any Printers. The after setting it up in XP put the disc in the other comp and double click the file on the disc to run it. all you do after it set what you want to share in Windows Explorer by Right Clicking on the Relevant item
