LAN for Win7 & Vista

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've done some searching for this but can't even determine if its possible.

I just built a new gaming rig, with a clean install of Windows 7. I have a 2 year old laptop with Windows Vista. I woud like to set up a local area network so that moving files from the laptop to the new systeym is easier.

When I tried to do it with Windows7, it tired to set up a Workgroup. But according to the Windows guide, it only works with only systems running Windows 7. Is there any easy way to set up a local area network for the wired desktop and wireless laptop?

enable File sharing on both pc's
assuming both are connected via a router/switch (or built in router on modem)
