      With both firewalls off I can see the network on each computer.

      When I try to open files on the laptop it asks for a username and password. EXACTLY what user name and password is it asking for because I think I've tried everycombination of username and password I've ever used.

      JEEEEZ - 6 hours of frustration for what is probably something so simple for other people - HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLP !
      The windows username/password of the machine you are trying to access!

      Sometimes it helps if the username/password are the same on both machines!

      This is what I am thinking of doing.

      I have now done this and it works fine. The printer is just seen on the network and is accessible via and IP address.
