    I've got a wirelesss network set up using an Apple Extreme Base Station, and I've been able to get my two Macs to be able to exchange files. Now for the fun.

    There are also two PC's connected to the wireless, ( internet for the kiddies ), and I need to move some files from one of them to my iMac. How do you get a PC to exchange files with a Mac on the same network?

    Turn on Windows Sharing in the Mac firewall.

    Then from your PC, go to Run and type \\iMac Name\User Name and you should have access to your iMac from your PC.
