Hi all, hope someone can help!

I've just set up a wireless network between my home PC and my laptop in order to share files. All worked fine until I brought the laptop into work and found that the work PC can also access my laptop files, and vice versa. The laptop and work PC have different workgroup names. I've changed the workgroup name on the laptop, just to be sure, but the PC is still able to access my files.

How can I block anyone who uses the work PC from having access to my personal files?

Hey lektra,

What Operating System do you have on your laptop?

I assume your connecting wirelessly at work with your laptop also?
