Accessing my printer over wireless network

  MartynHoll 16:54 12 Apr 2006

I have just connected up a wireless router and now have successfully connected my main (lan connected) PC and my laptop (wireless). I cannot see at the moment how to access the printer from my laptop and also the shared drive of my PC from the laptop. Can anyone advise, please

Have you set them (Printer and HDD) up for sharing?

Yes, I have but I cannot 'see' them from the laptop!

Any other ideas?

Make sure you have configured your firewalls correctly or try turning them off

I have tried turning off the firewall and then I have tried 'pinging' the IP addresses of each PC from the other and both failed. I also tried ipconfig and it tells me the ethernet adaptor local area connection has 'media disconnected'! Is this anything to do with my problem?
