    Asus MeMO Pad 10,would like to network my pad over the WiFi router, Have shared the drives, directories, and individual files. Windows 7 Home Pro. Can't get the network to 'see' the pad or the pad to see the shared contents. ES File explorer won't 'find' the server in either scan or manual mode. I have found very little on how to open my home computer up for media sharing. Would anyone who has done this like to share a tutorial or how-to or link to one?

    Found the problem to be Norton Firewall. Disabled and started Win7 firewall, no further problems.
