Default Can't connect to my main PC via wireless network

I'm trying to connect my laptop to my desktop via a wireless network. However, I get this message:

logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

My laptop is Windows Vista and my desktop is Windows 7.

Help?

If they're both windows I don't see that as being a problem.

You need to ensure that the username on each system is the same, and that the password is identical to get it to work flawlessly. Alternatively, you can try to connect to the other PC by going to Start, clicking Run (or press Windows + R on the keyboard) and typing \\yourpcnamehere and hitting enter. It SHOULD prompt you for a username/password if you've set up folder shares already. Then just enter the username & password on the other PC to get in.
