    Mac + PC + Router

    Hello,

    I have a wireless router here. Then, I have a macbook connecting to the router via an Airport connection. Additionally, I have a PC connecting to the same router with a network cable.

    Both computers connect to the router fine, but for some reason I can't see the PC on the Mac and can't see the Mac on the PC to share files, etc...

    Does anyone have this kind of setup? If you have any advice, it will be greatly appreciated. I'll be using the PC mainly for storage since it has two huge hard drives, so I want to put data from the Mac onto it and retrieve it again.

    Thanks for your help and assistance!
    And so I got lost in code...completely asphyxiated by it...

    Can you browse to the Windows machine at all? Try going to the "Go" menu in Finder, and hitting "Connect to server", then entering the IP address and share name of your Windows computer (i.e. smb://192.168.1.4/myshare).

    You might need to throw the machines on the same workgroup as well.
