Connecting Win 7 to Win Vista for File Sharing

By frankando12 ·
I have a New Lenvono Thinkcentre and a new HP Pavilion laptop both running win 7 and conected wirelessly to my router. Have set up Homegroup on both new computers and it is working ok . I also have a older PC running Vista conected to the same router via a cable not wireless this has a lot of Photos and Video that I would like to access. I have tried to connect the two new computers to the Vista no luck. Would anyone know how I can connect to the vista computer . I started following ( How do I ) Make Windows & HomeGroup content accessable to Vista and XP? then realised that all machines would need to be wirelessly conected I would think. Can someone help Thank You

You have to enter your WiFi Access Points Setup and Bridge and the Wireless and Wired Networks together. By default most WiFi Access Points have this disabled so computers on your Wired Network are unable to see anything on your Wireless Network.

As Both Vista and 7 are effectively the same OS all you should need do is to run the Network Setup Wizard on the Vista System and add it to the Homegroup that you have already established after you have the Wired and Wireless Networks Bridged.
