Hi Sorry if this comes across as a complete drongo, but I wonder if anyone can help me out here?
I have a HP Pavillion 482 machine as a desktop and a Packard Bell L easynotes laptop (both operating with XP home edition with SP2). I have replaced my old ADSL modem with a BT Voyager 2110 router.
I have added a BT 1050 wireless adapter to the HP machine and so far so good. I have managed to get both of the machines to get internet access via the router and the HP machine can view the shared folders on the Laptop. However the laptop can't seem to find the desktop machine, no matter what I have tried...! Ideally I want to be able to share all data between the two machines and also the printer that is connected to the desktop.
Any suggestions would really be appreciated.....even those which may not be too polite.
