    trasfering files between two macs with a wireless router
    I have a power book and a mac pro, both are connected to a wireless router for internet access.

    Is there any way I can transfer files from one to the other through the wireless network. I'm a little weak on the technicalities of networking so, I'd really appreciate it if someone could walk me through this.

    If both are connected to the router, then just click on the Network tab (in the finder window) and they show show up there.

    If they don't, then go to System Preferences > Sharing > and click on Personal file sharing. Somewhere below there will be a text which says something like "use this computer name to access your mac from other macs" and it will show like "oneword-imac-something.local". Just click on the desktop, and press Command+K, and enter that name without the quote marks and press connect. Should work.

    Otherwise the router isn't configured right..
