Windows 7 Windows 7 machines dont network over wireless connection!


I've setup the basics, I.e: Ip address, default gateway, etc. But for the hell of me, it doesnt network! I cant see my desktop through my laptop and vice versa. Is it much different to network as it was from the XP days?
Shouldn't be all that difficult. Are you sure both machines have the same Workgroup specified? Do you have the folders you want to access shared? Have you turned on Network discovery?
Have you checked the Network and Sharing Center, Advanced Sharing settings, and made sure Network Discovery and Printer and file sharing is enabled?

There is a troubleshooter you can run to check the system.
