Any networking wizards out there?
I have 3 laptops connected wirelessly, mine running Vista and the other 2 running XP.
When I click on 'network' the other laptops show up but when I try to connect to the first one it asks me to provide a username and password, even though there isnt one set. I can connect to the second one no problem.
Any ideas?

make sure you have "simple file sharing" enabled on the one you can't connect to.

That did the trick, Thanks.
