If you are using a firewall (and I hope you are) it sounds as though it needs to be setup so that it can "see" the laptop,the windows xp firewall is pretty useless even in SP2, I use Zone Alarm from click here (the free version)and on my home network of 4 pc's (1 wired and 3 wireless)I have Zone Alarm on all 4,but you must make sure that you put in the other pc's IP address into the "trusted zone" in your case the IP address of your desktop must be in the trusted zone of your laptop and viceversa.hth.
