    I don't know how to get the local networking to work, but you could try just using Dropbox. It works on Mac OS and Windows.

    In system preference, sharing, make sure file sharing is checked, click the options, and enable everything, it should work once you reboot.

    If you have home networking enabled on your other computers, they should appear on the left of your finder window, beneath the hard drive. Like so:

    Enable sharing Windows, then you can press Command+K in Finder to connect, type the IP of the Lenovo (ie. 192.168.0.105 or whatever it is), the enter credentials (user, password if any) and you should be able to see any shared files and folders on the Mac.

    That is how I do it.
