comment How can I share a printer and files on a Windows network over wifi
Sorry - limited time on here. What does the network and sharing center say for each? Home network? HomeGroup: Joined? What do you see if you click on the full network map (at the top)?

comment Network use of Gaming PC
Nothing really... Sandy Bridge E is just coming out so that would be a step up, as would a GTX580 or 590, or a Radeon 5990...if you have more money than sense! But they will be out of date before you get them out of the box. You have a very good PC - use it properly... move the wife into the office.

In Windows Explorer, type in \\MyOtherPcName\ in the address bar and press return - this should show shared resources on this machine (e.g. printers). If it doesnt work, open a command prompt and type 'ping 192.168.0.99' (substituting the IP address of your other pc) - if this command responds with a timeout message, it means there is a connectivity issue.

I've added a link to a video demonstrating how to connect to a homegroup. Presumably, your 2nd machine can see the first under Homergoups?

comment Recommendations for utility to paste plain text?
+1. Puretext is utterly brilliant. Small, neat, easy to use.
