|Yes, it's set up, and as far as I can tell, the folders are actually shared. when i right click on them, I click "Sharing and security" and "share this folder on network" is checked.|
Someone else told me that if I could type \\COMPUTERNAME\FolderName into my browser and see the other computer's shared files that the connection was fine and that it may be a firewall issue. I can see the files that way, but when I turn off my windows firewall (I don't have any other firewalls), it still doesn't fix it. My router does have a hardware firewall, but that doesn't seem like it should make a difference.
