Folder Sharing across wireless network

  Zooloo 17:07 08 Apr 2009

I have succesfully networked my new Laptop to my old router, So I can surf the internet.

I am trying to link wirelessly with my old PC, so I can file share. I've set up matching user accounts on the laptop and PC, and with the anti-virus switched OFF, I can file share OK. But when I switch the firewalls back ON, I can't see the PC from my laptop.

Any offers?

Which firewalls are you using ? It might have been better to set up the file sharing with them turned on so they know what is happening and pop up to ask if this is Ok or not .

You have to enable file sharing as exception or allow it to pass through on firewall.
