Hoping someone on here can help me out. Got a new laptop so set up a wireless network with the old PC in our house. Got both on the same network with a shared Internet connection. My prob is that I cant access the old PC from the laptop - whenever I double click on the icon for the old PC it asks me for a username and password and ive got no idea what this is!

Thanks in advance
