I'm having a little trouble, not that it's a big deal, but I wouldn't mind it if it can be fixed. Currently my computer is the gateway and I'm using a wireless D-Link router so my g/f can get online with her laptop. Getting online isn't a problem, she's happily surfing the web and e-mailing.

What I'd like to be able to do is to transfer files between the 2 computers, but thus far I haven't been able to do it. I have both computers on the same network (which I named Paradise), but the Paradise workgroup doesn't show up in my Networks folder. Am I missing something here? A step?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Venek, have a look at this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308582
Two things you need to have a shared folder on the drive you want to network, you can put it where u want and call it any thing also your firewalls need to allow file and print sharing.
