    hi,

    I recently networked my computers (wireless adsl) and I can share my internet access but not the printer etc. I go into my network places which is empty so can someone tell me how I can network the printers and all that?

    btw i tried doing the set up small network wizard and the wizard gets to a screen where it says disconnected hardware which is:

    Local Area Connection VIA compatible fast ethernet adaptor

    btw the network hardware I use is a minitare PCI 11g for both computers.

    That's usually a setup done quite early so hope it didn't take to long to learn about it.
