having trouble creatin home network, hlp pls!

Been trying to set up a home network using our existing wireless network. I have a pc wired to the router and connected to the printer. I also have a laptop connecting wirelessly to the netowrk. I have run the netowrk setup wizard on both machines, but cannot seem to be able to get the laptop to "see" the other computer. When I click on view workgroup to see what is hapening, I am told that it is "not accessible- you do nothave permission to use this network resource" and "windows cannot find a network path"
I can't seem to find the printer either.

I can see the laptop from the main computer fine.

I have tried removing PCguard from the main computer (was going to get za anyway as finding PCG highly irritating), but this has not helped. Am running Norton IS on laptop.

Both computers are XP.

Any help much appreicated!

Thanks I will have a look at these later. Unfortunately I think that it may now be the least of my worries - I can't get my laptop to connect at all to the wireless network - it just spends ages "talking" to the router and acquiring... Think I may have to try and reset the whole thing...
