    Are both computers all ready connected to some kind of existing network or do you need to create the network?

    If you need to create a network then ...

    Do the computers have any wired or wireless networking built in?

    What is the distance between computers and are there any heavy walls or lots of metal between them?

    Would you be able to run CAT5E or CAT6 (Ethernet) cable between computers?

    How many LAN ports are on your DSL Modem? Does it have a built-in wireless access point?

    Hi thank you for your quick response. Ok this is what I have, There is a network I have a DSL router and both computers are connected to the router. via cat5 cable. There is one glass door in between I would say max is 30 ft aprt from each other. There are 4 lan ports 2 used by the pcs, one used by the printer.

    does this make sense? thank you

    Short description for Vista file sharing.

    Go into the network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private.' In the Sharing and Discovery section you can configure File sharing, Public folder sharing (similar to Shared Documents in previous Windows), Printer sharing and Password protected sharing.

    Vista requires that a user account be password protected before it will permit file sharing.

    You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).

    Short description for Windows 7 file sharing:

    Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Home' (or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

    You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).
