smb to connect to the PC to look at the files:
In Finder, Go -> Connect to Server
and I use
smb://mypc <-- this is my pc's name in the config
to be able to look at the shared folders on my PC from the macbook (wireless). But after a couple of day or sometimes a few days, the connection goes bad, and reconnect is waiting for 10 minutes and it still tries to connect.
Is there a way around this? Using a different method? For example, if I set up a webserver on my PC, then the files can be more easily accessible because the macbook has no problem accessing any websites, but i just don't want to need to set up a webserver to do file access.
