are both machines using windows XP?
if so you HAVE to have the firewalls turned off on both machines
hopefully the device you are getting your internet access uses
NAT to obfuscate your actual ip addresses for each machine
on your network. NAT works almost as good as a firewall, at
least from the outside it does. if anything is on your machines
already it does not prevent outgoing comms...
also... if they are using XP is it Home or Pro?
Pro supports username/password authentication much better
than home does... and you can control each folder, exactly
who has read/write or read only or full control...
anyhow, hopefully this helps
