I'm running Windows 7 Enterprise on my desktop computer, and Snow Leopard on my MacBook pro. I have a wlan modem/router connected via ethernet to the desktop which I use to connect to the internet wirelessly on the MacBook. I want to share files and a printer over a wireless network so I can access the stuff on the desktop PC wirelessly from my MacBook, but I am having trouble setting up a network on the PC and connecting from the Mac. I know there is no problem with the router or wireless configuration because I can connect to the internet easily from both computers with good speed. I can also connect to other MacBooks in the house via the wireless router.

I had the network working fine from Windows XP until I recently upgraded to 7.

Thanks for the help

I also am having the same problem. I have a Time Capsule connected to my Win7 desktop. I can see all the computers in the house, 2 macbook pros and a Win7 laptop from my desktop. Macbooks can see each other (from the sidebar) but can't see the Win7 computers. The only way to access the Win machines from the macbooks is thru Finder-Go-Connect to server and log in to the units. I thought by getting the Time Capsule this would solve the problem as I had this same problem with my Linksys.

I hope someone can help out on this one.
