    Have wireless network, but no computers!

    I recently set up a wireless network and both of my computers can connect to the internet through it, but I can't see the computers in my network places. It found my workgroup, but when I double click on it to view the computers, nothing happens...I'm trying to transfer files between computers...can anyone help me out?

    Thanks!

    Make sure you have your computers set up for file sharing, and that you have sharing enabled on the specific folders you want to share. If you have no shared resources you will not see the computers on the network.

    Make sure if you have XP that your firewall exceptions are set to allow File sharing. Also make sure that you have the same workgroup set for both computers. Also, check the setting on your wireless router.
