Printer and file access problem - PLEASE HELP

  iedwards1919 20:10 04 Jan 2006

I have a Dell Dimension desktop and a Belkin 802.11g Router. I have two advent 7081 laptops in different rooms in the house, both with USB wireless adaptors. The laptops can access the internet perfectly. My Dell machine can see that the laptops are on the network I have set up. The problem is that my laptops cannot see into my Dell machine and cannot therefore use the printer attached to the Dell machine. The error message which appears mentions that, "I may not have permission to use this network resource."
I have spoken to PC World at length and been told that the problem appears to be with the permissions on the DEll computer.
I have spoken to Dell who tell me that they will not help home customers with network problems and recommend that I go to PC World.
I am not too technically minded but can get through the basics. Can someone out there please tell me what I need to do to get this all working!
