I finally managed to install a modem router with a wireless laptop.

Can anyone advise me on how to access my PC's files from my laptop?

In windows explorer, I find PC under my network places, but when I click on it it comes up with a username of PC/guest and asks for a password.

Am I in the wrong place?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that - but does anyone have a simple direct link please - I am a complete novice and am unsure how to access my main PC from the laptop?
