I did a search on this on the board, and the dates were pretty old for info. So, can anyone walk me through networking two computers, one PC with Vista, and a new laptop with 7? I'm pretty saavy, but not a good as most of you so I sort of need a more layman's language. Also, my Western Digital external drive is recognized in the PC, but the new laptop won't recognize. Do I need to install drivers in the laptop? Ports work with the thumb drive and dongle.
