Follow the steps

THen select the Plug in port - local area connection or Wifi connection.

hey guys,

how would you get this file sharing to work if you have a wireless router and connected to that is another router. the laptop is using the wireless router and the computer is connected to the other router??

If you've already discovered the answer then disregard. If not, then read on...

1-Try going to the properties box of the wireless adapter in Network Connections.
2-Then choose TCP/IP and click properties.
3-Click the advanced button.
4-Click the WINS tab.
5-Under NetBIOS settings choose "Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP".
6-Click "OK" for all boxes and restart.

Hope it helps!

goto network -> network and sharing center (at top)

turn off password protected sharing

that fixed my problem with getting to a folder on vista from an xp machine.

note: this is the most secure thing you can do so make sure your network is pretty secure. As long as your behind a pretty good firewall you should be okay for say home or small office use
