    I just recently bought a Toshiba Satellite with Windows Vista. I have a
    Trendnet wireless router connected to my PC. My laptop can access the
    internet and the PC can see my laptop in the network; however, my laptop
    cannot see the PC.

    Some of the basics.........
    Make sure both are in the same "workgroup".
    Make sure both are SHARED. If you feel secure you can simply rt click your
