Equipment - Netgear DG834GT wireless router
Netgear WG111T Usb adaptor
Desktop PC and Laptop PC with wifi

I have successfully set up my 2 PC's to connect through my wireless router to my ADSL ISP without a problem. I also want to share files between my Desktop and Laptop but Windows XP states that I cannot use the wizard in Xp to set it up because I am using Netgear software to configure the settings of the router and usb adaptor. I have tried searching everywhere for info on how to use the router to share files between my 2 PC's to no avail. Am I doing something wrong here. I am a novice to the networking side of things, any help greatly appreciated.

Regards

GFY

Thanks moore_mat

This is kind of what I have done, i.e used the network setup wizard instead of the wireless network setup wizard and I can select folders and share between my laptop and desktop pc but at no time was I asked about any security measures when setting up the file sharing side of it. Do you know if this connects them both through my router or do they communicate with each other directly ?
