Riiiiight .... (reading glasses on !)

I have a wireless network already installed in my house some IT Guyyyz set it up

I have a few laptops n computers etc which are connected

In my room, i have my laptop (which basically sits on my desk as the battery went and killed itself :@) and a Normal (Desktop/Tower) PC

If it helps at all....
The laptop is Amilo Pro V2030
The computer is Emachines 370
Yeh they're both crap :D

Laptop has a hopeless internal wireless card which tbh needs binned, (it cant connect to my network coz the range is well em, crap)
So...... i have a usb adapter thing in that connects to my wireless network fine :D

My PC doesn't have wireless cards etc its got a normal pluggy in thing in the back !

I have two crossover cable but tbh they are the biggest pain in the a**e ever (i dont like setting ip things and ICS is literally b*llucks)

I want to share my HD from my pc to my laptop and dvd drive, cd drive floppy drive (basically everything) and vice versa

...... oh and i also want to be able to share the wireless network from the laptop to the pc and be able to use both at same time etc !

(also i dont understand routers i read somewhere its easier to use them instead of ICS, so can someone please draw me a little diagram in paint :D )

Can't draw for toffee but i've uploaded a pic of a simple home network that would suit your needs.

The wireless router and cable/dsl modem are now usualy one unit.

You just need to choose between canle or adsl?
