I have linksys wireless router and 2 laptops, one acer and other toshiba. created a new wireless network called home and put up a passkey. i also see both computers have unique ip addresses. yet no computer can access the other as in files. why is that so?  i turned the firewall off and still no help.

Its urgent considering that I hate wires all over my house.Thye would rather trap me instead of a a rat or 2

Can the laptops ping each other for starters (start>run>type cmd>click ok. Type ping x.x.x.x = ip address)? You'll get 'reply' if it's working. Any other firewall software installed eg Zonealarm, Norton, McAffee etc? Have you shared the folders you want each system to have access to?

Thanks

You should create your home network (enable file sharing, etc.). Run Home network wizard, share drive and folder.

and make sure you have same username password on both computers. It can work without this but then you have to configure ntfs permissions
