Hi,

I recently bought a new Dell XPS laptop which rund on Vista, and want to share my files between the two. I have set up a 'home or small office network' and that went thourgh fine, then I changed the workgroup name on the the Laptop to concur with what it was on the PC. Sometimes the PC is recognized, but even when it is I can't access it. Any idea as to what might be wrong?
