Hi Folks, i'm trying to attempt Media Sharing from my Pc running Win 7 Home Premium to My Acer 2920 running Vista Home Premium via a NetGear WGR614v7 router.
I've set the 7 machine sharing options to show on Local Network with it saying that "All Devices are allowed to access your shared media" 7 shows my Acer and can read it's Public folders.
When i go into Network on my Acer (Vista) all i can access is the Public folders on the pc even though i've selcted the Share with all pc's on my network.
Anyone have a tip that will allow me to access everything on 7 from Vista.
I do use VNC (Real & Tight) but it seems to time out halfway through a file transfer that way.
I was using AVG AV but switched to Microsoft Security Essentials and still get the same irritating problem.
Any / All  :help: appreciated

Add your own media folders to share, not just the public ones.

Alt click your folders / Share with / Homegroup

I have found almost every occassion that this happens.... is (Firewall) settings are the problem.

You might be able to see all SHARES, and such... but the FW must allow .  turn off the internet, access.
then Turnoff the Firewall....  then see if you can gain access.... M$ Firewall is easy to set that way... many other 3d Partys are not so easy... you might need to go into ADVANCED not basic.
