    I recently purchased a Toshiba netbook with Windows 7 Starter Edition. On another computer I have Windows XP and they are both connected to the internet via WIFI in my house. I am having difficulties getting the Workgroup file sharing feature to work on my computers. I have the workgroup name the same on both computers, and have created username and passwords.

    When I try and connect from Windows 7 to XP I keep getting the error invalid login or password. The password is correct, I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    Anyone have any advice?
