I have a G4 desktop and a T book which connect with each other just fine using my Airport Extreme base. I just inherited a Gateway lap top running XP which connects wirelessly to the base for internet access but I can't get it networked with the Macs. Any suggestions?

The PC should show up in the macs, but not the macs in the pc. Windows and Samba aren't too keen on each other.

Mine works both ways. You need to share a folder on the mac for it to show up though.

make sure "allow user to log on from windows" is enabled in your user account.
