hi there i have a vista based pc and laptop, with a wireless network router netgear wpn24. my laptop is connected wirelessly and cpu is wired to router, my problem is a few days ago i lost the ability to access my shared files on the pc. when i try, the id password window pops up and i never had a password or user id set up before.. i have always had that problem with the pc being able to acess the laptop but never the other way around... plz help i have turned firewall off on both pc and laptop and that didnt help.. i can acess the internet through the router with both computers just not eachother
