Access Laptop from PC

  Third Hussar 19:16 31 Aug 2007

I use a Netgear router to connect my PC (Windows XP) the laptop (Vista) the connection is fine. But, whilst I can open PC files from the laptop when attempting to open laptop files from the PC a window requests User Name and Password. How do I name and password the laptop Please?
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Best wishes

Mine does that as well, but even when i enter the usrname ad password that i always do to use the lappy the box just pops up again.

Sorry i can't help but I've added it to 'my postings' just in case someone else can help.

When trying to connect My XP PC to Vista laptop via netgear router it will allow me access using the name and password used to enter laptop directly. I am unable to discover how to add another name and password. Help please.
