So I just set up a new workgroup, its got my "main" computer and my "laptop". When I go to my network places and click view workgroup computers, it shows both PC's, but when I try this on my laptop it says,

"MAIN" is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin of this server to find out if you have acceess permissions.
The list of servers is not surrently avaiable."

And when I try and access "laptop" from my main computer it says:

"Laptop" is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin of this server to find out if you have acceess permissions.
The network path was not found"

Any help to this would be great thanks :D

Did you configure the client firewalls?

Have you created shares?

ive tried it with the firewall off, and it still doesn't work.
And yep

Simple or complex file sharing? (Home/Pro/or mixed?)

Both on pro, both wireless conections.

So you're NOT using Simple File Sharing then? If you are, turn it off. Then you can customise permissions.

How do i customise the permissions?

With SFS disabled, it's all on the Sharing tab of each share. Mostly, you'll want level 5. Expect possible trouble if your shares are in a location whose parent folder previously had privacy enabled.

You can also run the fsmgmt.msc and compmgmt.msc consoles.

Right, things have changed now.
On my main computer when I click my network places, I can see the shared folder on the PC, but not with the laptop, theres nothing in there.

When I click view workgroup computers on my main PC, theres only the Main PC there, not the laptop.
On my laptop, in My network places it dpesnt show the shared folder, and when I click View workgroup computers, it says the same :

"MAIN" is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin of this server to find out if you have acceess permissions.
The list of servers is not currently avaiable."
