Hey everyone

how do i make a home netowrk so that i can share files between my two laptops?

both machines are wirlessly connecting to the net and both i have made sure are both using the same work group name, further more both machines have a identical named user account, "user" and are both passworded

thanks everyone

on the vista one run the network setup wizard and with luck all will be fine. You will have to share the c: drive of both machines and make sure the firewall accepts the other one,
