    I just got a laptop and a wireless router, so my laptop can roam wherever I want it to. But also connected to the router is my desktop computer. How do I make it so that I can trade files back and forth between the two. This is probably a pretty simple question, but whatever.

    Make sure they are part of the same Workgroup..

    You can check this by going on each one and Right Clicking your My Computer Icon>Properties

    System properties box will come up, go to the Computer name Tab>click the change button and make a WORKGROUP name so that the two computers share the same name..

    Through your Network places, you should be able to see both computers once you have Shared Folders on the drive you would like to share..

    I will check back later to see if this was any help..Let me know if you have any questions..

    And this really applies to XP only, but should be across the board with most Windows based OS'..

    That helped, I think I had them under two different work groups. I'm going to try to set it up again using network wizard. If you wouldn't mind and have aim could you give me a holler at IHEARTHESCENE. I could maybe pay you in used license plates or trucker hats?
