i have a wireless netowrk set up, with my pc hard wired to the router/modem and my laptop working wirelessly. i want to use my printer from the laptop but having trouble.

when i click 'share this printer' and click ok a warning box pops up saying 'printer settings could not be saved. Operation could not be completed'

what's goin on??

it seems i can't share files either
'an error occured while trying to share 'my documents'the server service is not started. the shared resource was not created at this time'

server service is back up and running. i had disabled it to save resources.

i'm still stuck though. i have enabled sharing for printer and files but i can't see them on my laptop. where are they??
