on the pc's (not macs) open a window,

click 'folder options'
click the "view" TAB


Scroll all the way down and UNTICK 'use simple file sharing'

everyone......bob....bert.....mom....dad.....etc....etc.

probably "everyone" will suffice , but please make sure your wireless is

Did as you suggested, TP, but no results. I looked for the shared folder in
My Network Places and it wasn't there. If I went to "add a network place" it
told me that the folder was unavailable.
