Alright, before I go much further, I want to verify that you can see and share files between both computers using My Network Places, right?

It sounds like you want to send files directly from computer to computer. That would be the alternative to what you are working with right now, which is uploading files to My Network places, and then having to download the files onto the downstairs computer. You just want to transmit files from one hard disk to the other, correct?

Pardon the interruption. We have an excellent guide on file and printer sharing here.

Go through the check list, but I'm guessing this is your problem:

9. You should now be back at the “Local Area Connection Properties” window.
..........9A. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click the "Properties" button.
..........9B. Click the General tab, and then click Advanced.
..........9C. Click the WINS tab.
..........9D. Under NetBIOS setting, click "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP", and then click OK two times.
..........9E. Click Close to close the Local Area Connection Properties dialog box.
