Setting up a home network basic advice needed

  legalrep 09:18 29 Dec 2007

I have a bt wireless network. My son has just got a laptop, can anyone point me towards a simple guide to linking up the two machines, or explain simply what I need to do? I have a Evesham Desktop running Windows XP Pro and a HP laptop running Vista Home Premium. I'm fairly confident with basic computing but need a straight forward explanation; any help would be much appreciated!

Hi Technotiger many thanks for your responce, should have said I have the computers both set up and working on the network but what I'm trying to do is share the files from my home PC, ie transfer all my sons files from home computer to his new laptop, sorry to have mis informed you.
