My laptop and tablet aren't talking...
Not on wifi anyway. Laptop (Win7) and tablet (Lenovo A2107A) both connect happily to the internet on my home wifi, and talk to each other through a USB cable, but don't find each other wirelessly. I tried using ES file explorer to connect to the LAN, input username and password, but it tells me 'Login Failure'. Where do I go from there?

You have to set at least one folder in Windows to be shared. (Right-click/Sharing.) If you want to access the whole computer from the tablet, share all the drives on the laptop, one at a time. The tablet can only access shared resources. (And there usually has to be at least one user on the Windows computer with a login password - that's the user and password the Android tablet uses to log into the Windows share.)
