Re: Wi-Fi Sharing -- problem

I cannot see my home network from my PB, but I can use a work around: I have mounted my PB as a mapped drive on my laptop through Windows Explorer. This has been working fine now for a month or more. Even if I haven't logged into my PB, I can easily move files onto or off of it. I find the lack of a proper file system on the PB--including network access--to be irksome, particularly if I'm trying to find a file to attach to an email, but I can live with my work-around.
