    Just set up a wireless home network, but the problem I'm having is, my desktop C:\ drive is not listed on my laptop, but my laptop C:\ is listed on my desktop machine. Both running Win7. Hope this is clear.Thanks Keith

    You want to share the root of the C: drive on both machines over the network?
    Let me know if I understood correctly.

    On the desktop machine, open Computer.
    Right click the C: drive and then select Properties.

    Click the Sharing tab and then click the Advanced Sharing button.
    You can now select the Share this folder checkbox and configure it appropriately.

    Once the share is created, the C: drive share should show up for the desktop.
