Hello,

I have a desktop running Windows XP Pro with my shared files and printers on it and a laptop running Windows Vista over a wifi network that I cannot get to access the desktop files or printers. The windows xp desktop is able to see my laptop running Vista's shared files/folders and printers. How do I get my laptop running vista to see my main printers and files on the desktop running Win XP? I installed the LLP network protocol on my xp desktop and still am not able to see my desktop computer on the network from my vista laptop. Please help, thanks.

Hi there,
Driver to what? The printer? That doesn't solve the problem of file sharing though. Anything on that? Thanks for your help.
