To summarise, when at my Secondary PC a Dell9150 (IP address 192.168.1.107) connected to my home Network via WiFi, I am UNABLE to access the shared files stored on my primary Desktop PC an HP 6140 (IP address 192.168.1.101). Conversely, sharing of a printer and the internet connection works 100% OK.
Running a Microsoft Knowledgebase Article (KB314067) has not helped my solve the problem but it has thrown up a couple of interesting points which may give a clue:-
(1) When pinging from my primary desktop PC to the secondary one, I get a message "Destination Host Unreachable".
(2) When I ran "Hostname" from the command prompt on the secondary PC, it shows itself as the Host, rather than showing the primary PC as the host.
Both (1) and (2) above sound suspicious candidates to me but I do not know what to check / fix next. Per an earlier suggestion, I have made both the IP addresses "Trusted Sites". Any steer would be much appreciated .
Pictures of the Ping test results are attached: ---------------------------------------------

I found that when using VISTA, all the files to be shared must be in the PUBLIC directory. I know some folks do not agree, some say it is not necessary to do this and that there are probably some security implications. However, it works for me.
