Hey Guys,

I've set up a wireless network connection at my house with a wireless router through a broadband ethernet connection. All laptops can access the wireless network and use the internet etc.

Just trying to set up a work-group with shared folders.

At the moment im trying to establish shared folders between the PC the router is connected to and a laptop. I have set up the same workgroup on each PC with different computer names. On the laptop I can see the PC through the "workgroup computers" but cannot see the laptop through the PC. Also non of the selected shared folders are being displayed.

Any ideas of what might be the problem here? I have heard that it may be something to do with a firewall established through the wireless network but im not sure that this is the case or not.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
