i bought a new laptop and need to setup a home network. the main reasons why i want to do so is because, i want to print from the local printer from my notebook, i want to be able to share files from my desktop to my notebook, i want to be able to play lan games.
what i have
-an hp desktop
-linksys wireless router
-xp on both desktop and notebok
currently the printer is installed locally with the desktop. The desktop is connected to a port on the back of the router. the notebook is using the wifi from my router.
what's the easiest way to set this up?
here's the basic setup
