I have a wireless laptop running xp home, and a pc running xp pro. My Modem is a Linsys wcg200 gateway/router/modem/wap. How do i get file and printer sharing with the wireless, it dose not seem to be the same as when i set up a home network with all physical connections to the router because i have had no trouble with that in the past. All computer have the same workgroup. Please help!!!!

hi
if both the pc and the laptop are working from the same router, then you are already halfway there. this means that both the devices are on the same domain.
now enable sharing on your folders and printers which you want to share. what you do next is go into network neighbourhood, and see if you get any icons for the shared facilities on the other computer. once you have seen it, you should be able to use the folders like any normal folder. but do bare in mind, on the remote machine you can only copy from it, you cannot put any files on it unless you declare such permission explicitely.
for the printer, add it by choosing the option for a networked printer. the relevant printer installed on the other computer will come up, all you have to do now is install the relevant drivers. this would enable you to work with the shared printer.

what problems are you experiencing now then?
do you have any other software which might be blocking the private IP addresses assigned to the laptop or the desktop?
sometimes a firewall software might block foreign addresses and that might hinder your visibility of other devices on the same domain
