Hello, I'm stumped at why I can't map a network drive between my 2 computers. I'm trying to map a drive via the network that I shared on my desktop to my laptop but I don't see the desktop or the drive in window's network places on the laptop even though i put them both in the same workgroup. The Vista desktop will ping the Win 7 laptop but the laptop won't successfully ping the desktop (i.e. it can't find it). They both have the automatically handed out ip of 192.168.1.something and I checked the router's settings and I didn't see any settings in there that could be messing with it. I've tried restarting both computers, manually giving them ip's, and even using the network magic software that sometimes comes with routers and none of it has helped. I would greatly appreciate some help. Thanks in advance!
