Linux Ubuntu/Windows Wireless Network

I've just switched my self-build PC from XP Pro to Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Lts, and have been amazed to find it easier to set up than I had thought. Problem is, that although I am connected to the Internet on both PC's, (The other being an old (trusty)1.0ghz xp home machine) I can see and access my wireless network shares from Ubuntu, but not the Ubuntu machine from XP! I'm not sure how to overcome this, any help would be greatly appreciated as ever.

Just bumping the thread, although I can actually print through Ubuntu via the XP Machine now too. Still no help guys?

Just started to "play" with Ubuntu myself and was looking for a solution to accessing my NAS drive when came upon your post. Saw something in my search that may help if you are still suffering with access problems. click here
