Cannot save files from laptop to PC

  Wrinkly70 15:08 02 Feb 2008

Have set up a network -Vista to Vista- with a Netgear wireless router connected to the PC, and a wireless enabled Laptop. Can see the computers on the network, see all the files on the PC, open them on the Laptop, BUT if I modify the files on the Laptop I cannot save them back to the PC, nor can I print them on the printer connected to the PC.
Any ideas.
Incidentally I can print documents on the printer attached to the PC, which have been written on the Laptop.

When you created the share did you set the attribute to Read or Full Control?

Have you added the printer using the ‘Add Printer’ wizard?

Thanks for quick response.
Set to Full Control on your recommendation; now it all works.
I used Add Printer, and it found the network printer.
Thank you
