Need help seeing Readyshare from Vista Laptop please

I have an XP Dell GX270 (wired), Vista Gateway laptop (wireless) and an Win7 Acer laptop (wireless). I have a WNDR3400 w/ the USB port. I have hooked up to it a 1.5TB Sata drive. I can see the drive fine on the XP and Win7, but not on the Vista. I didn't have to change any settings on the other computers and since I set it up months ago, I think I remember "allowing" the readyshare in the router itself (and I currently can't remember the darn router password). I don't know what to change on the Vista. I'm not too good w/ this type of networking (if you want to call it that) so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks. Smiley Happy

Can I bump after only 23 hours? I'm going to bed in a few minutes, lol.

I would double check all the settings on your Vista computer. Include a check on any firewall software.

I do recall an issue with Win XP which meant that in order to access other shared folders, you had to share at least one folder. If this is the case with Vista, just share the 'Shared Documents' folder on your Vista computer.
