So this is my third day having my MBP and I'm really starting to enjoy it. Even typing feels better on this laptop than on most other keyboards. But on to my current situation:

I want to be able to connect to other computers on my wireless network. I was able to simply go to My Network Places with my Windows computer and connect to other computers, thus allowing me to grab various files conveniently. I haven't been able to really figure out how to do this with my Mac. I tried connecting to a server, but I wouldn't call the network in my house a server per se. Hopefully what I'm trying to do makes sense.

Thanks in advance,
QUOTE Thanks
