Guess i'm too much of an idiot to figure this out.
My computer is running XP pro (with all the updates) and is plugged into the LAN1 port of a BUFFALO WHR-HP-GN IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless router.
I bought the wife an ACER Netbook which easily connects to the net (thanks again NT50 for the previous help on the router!!). The Netbook came with Win7 Starter, but now is running Win7 Home Premium.
The wife is now shooting pictures and saving them on the netbook's HD. All I want to do is be able to access her photo's (all are JPEG) to create backups, etc.
Like I said, I must be (more than just) a few bricks short in this department. I've been using XP for a while now, and I know there is a learning curve (especially for an old goat like me) for getting used to Win7. When we got the netbook, I did the initial set-up for her. I sure don't recall setting that thing up with any passwords, etc. as i'd probably forget them anyway. It seems like I have to log into this MS Networking (?) - which is a pain - and finally shows her computer!! I'll get prompted for a user ID & password. I swear I didn't do that for the aforementioned reason (i'd forget them). And that's that!
I tried that Win7 'home networking' thing and I guess that's not compatible or i'm not doing something right.
Any help for would be much appreciated.
