Wireless networking - can't share printer?

  kfq61 17:55 30 Sep 2004


hope someone can help.
We have 3 XP PC's all wireless networked ( or should I say, they share one internet connection without any problems). I have an actiontec router on my main pc and 2 usb adapters on laptop and other PC.
I have tried to share docs and the printer without success. When my 3rd PC arrived yesterday I set up the new wireless connection wizard, made a setup disk and put it in main PC. It gets nearly to the end of the process then tells me it has been unsuccessful. When I try to map a drive on my desktop I can see MSHome and my mainPC I want to get into for printer but no doc's or printer. I have shared my doc's folder and printer (giving it a name).
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks very much!
