I have a wireless broadband router that is connected via a cable to my desktop and wirelessly to my laptop. Sharing the internet connection is no problem but I can't seem to get the two computers to see each other on a network so they can share files and a printer.
I am sure that it is dead easy but I can't seem to get my head round it at the moment. Can someone please let me know what I need to do (it reasonably simple terms!)?
Both machines are running XP pro (have tried using the wizard but it loses the Internet connection on my desktop).
With both machines running XP Pro it should not be necessary to create a floppy. When using the wizard make sure you select the option that says something like...this computer connects to the internet via a gateway. Also select 'ignore diconnected items' or something like that. Also look under My Network Places and then Network Connections, if there is a bridge there delete it.
