hey guys, i have brought a laptop runnging w7 starter, all was good (could access my desktop running xp pro(with wireless usb adaptor) with remote desktop and through local network ect) untill recently. i can access internet on both computers but cannot access each other, if i wire them up with lan cable directly to the router they can see each other, just through wireless they cant,i even restored w7 on laptop back to system defaults. im stumped..

For some reason, Windows 7 needs a little longer to adapt to changes so if you're expecting instant response to networking alterations, you might think the changes haven't been accepted and go on to make other. Leave it twenty minutes or so for the Computer Browser Service to do its rounds and see what's happened since last it did so.

Also, W7 is a but more fussy about passwords than it needs to be and might expect XP to have a password protected User Account. That shouldn't be any different on wireless than wired but it is a thought on which another poster might expand.

Does "same settings" include NAT and firewall settings in the router itself, along with MAC filtering?
