I just picked up an Aspire 5100 this weekend, and have been having a time trying to figure out these couple of issues. Im trying to connect to my desktop wirelessly, to share media through wmp 11 and also utilize Remote desktop connection. Desktop is running on Xp Pro, and Acer on Vista. Laptop is connected to the wireless network but cannot detect the desktop and cant find any shared media from the desktop. I have disabled firewalls on both pc's and turned on media sharing on both, enabled rdc on the desktop and Im at wits end as to what to do next. My PS3 and Xbox pick up the media library just fine, and my sisters Dell notebook does as well with no hassles other than ticking "Pick up files that are being shared" option, and I have no idea whats wrong w/ my Acer. Please Help.
