Connect 2 windows7 machines through Wlan

I have one stationary machine with windows 7, and one laptop connected through WLAN. Both computers are in the same workgroup. The shared folder have the options "ALL" on everything with sharing. (Cpmplete access, Change, Read).

The laptop can find the folder - but when i try to open it - i get the message: (translated by me from swedish to english) "Can not access XXXX  You are not authorised .... contact the network administrator and ask for permission...

There is no password set...

if both are windows 7 you should use the home network wizard which will create shares etc.
the wireless shouldnt have anything to do with it.

Need to create a homegroup in Windows 7.

Should all be fine then, nothing complicated.

Turn ON: Network discovery, File and printer sharing, public folder sharing

Turn OFF: Password protected sharing

All found in Network and sharing centre and then advianced sharing settings
