I have a windows 7 laptop and a windows vista desktop. There is a wireless router connected to my desktop and I am able to connect to it and use the internet on my laptop. But I am having trouble connecting to my desktop and viewing files on my desktop from my laptop. When I open up the file manager and click on my desktop computer's name under "Network" (in the left area) it only shows my photosmart printer and a "Public" folder. The public folder doesn't have any of the files that are on my desktop computer. What is really annoying though is that it only occasionally lets me connect to the desktop. Usually it asks me for a login, but my desktop doesn't have any login, it has one admin account with no password. Also I turned off "password-protected" sharing and it still does this! I used to be able to connect and share files between my laptop and my desktop with no problem, but then my desktop got a virus and I had to reinstall the OS on it. Since then I've been having problems. I also turned off "password-protected sharing" on my desktop too, to no avail. And I used to be able to connect to my laptop from my desktop and share files that way even after I reinstalled the OS on my desktop, but that doesn't work anymore. When I connect to my laptop from my desktop it only shows a "Public" folder also. Also, I recently activated this thing called "Lenovo Veriface" on my laptop where instead of having to login to my laptop it uses the webcam to scan my face and logs me in that way. I don't think it has anything to do with this problem, but sometimes when I try to connect to my desktop from my laptop it pops up trying to verify my face to login. I uploaded two videos of what I am talking about to vimeo but they are "processing" right now so I will post the links here when they are viewable. Any ideas on what is wrong? Any suggestions? Thanks.
