Hi all, I'm having a problem creating a home network so I can share files from my various computers and printer. I have already established a wireless network with my desktop computer which uses windows OS XP. I'm also using a Netgear Rangemax duo N router WNDR3300. Now all my wireless computers are connected to my router and so therefore I can access the internet but now I would like to create a home network so I can transfer files between my laptops and my desktop. I would also like to be able to print from my laptop computer. My laptop computers are using both windows 7 and windows vista. I do not recall the process being this complicated I had once before had this home network established but now since I reformatted my laptop I can not get it back. Can someone please give me some assistance because I have no clue what to do next. :thumbsup:

Do not use the built in wizards to try to create a home network between win7 and vista or it will not work. Simply share the folder and set the permissions to full control for everyone unless you want to have to use passwords.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
