File Sharing doesn't work :(
Ok i have 2 systems running xp, one ethernet to router and other wireless to
router, and one system running vista - wireless to router, also a wireless
network printer. i have no troubles with my internet connection on each of
the systems but the file sharing just wont work. i am running PC-cillin
internet security 07 on all systems, and have adjusted all setting to stop
the firewall interfering (even tried turning it off). Before I installed
vista, the vista system (then on xp) could only discover the printer and the
wired to modem xp system. everything is on the same workgroup. I have tried
third party network programs and nothing works. Widnows help holds no answers
..... any suggestions????

You're going to need more detailed diagnostics than "file sharing just wont
work".

Maybe start over when setting up the new computer.
