Default Wireless system

I have a PC and a laptop and I have been trying to resolve a problem of getting the two computers to talk to each other! From the laptop I try and enter my computer as I want to use the printer and I can't get in. It asks for a password and as I am the only one using the computer I have no use for one. I have NO neighbours for half a mile as I live in the countryside, but of course the router is secure and needs a password.

So I have no password as I just want to login each day and every day without that hassle. I switch and let it load whilst I get on with other things. How can I get the laptop to see my computer and use the printer? I have it all ticked for sharing. The PS is Win7 64bit and the laptop Vista 32bit

Would be grateful for any advice

Thanks

Tony

The easiest way would be to create a Home Group on your Windows 7 machine:

Then follow the instructions give here to access it with the Vistra machine:
