    My PC has vista HP x 64 installed and is connected to a wireless router
    (infrastructure) and my laptop has vista HP 32 bit os. Can I network using
    the two different os's? and if so how do I do it? My laptop cannot access
    anything on the home pc at the moment.

    TIA

  2. Hi
    Network connection wise it does not matter if the computers are x86 and or
    x64 in any mixture.
    Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
    traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
    be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
    on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
    Firewall instructions.
