I have a Macbook Air and a Windows 7 laptop on the same wireless home network. From the MAC I can see and access all the folders and files on the PC. However the MAC does not appear on the PC. I have tried various suggestion to no avail. I have set up file sharing on both computers.

Any advice most welcome.
