    Here's what I got:

    One wireless router hooked up to TV for PlayStation 2
    Two laptops with wireless PC Cards (XP Home)
    One Toshiba e740 PDA with integrated wireless (Pocket PC 2002)
    One desktop computer with access point and printer (XP Pro)


    The wireless internet is working fine on all devices.

    How do I network these devices so I can access my files and printer from all computers?

    Enable DHCP on the router, set each PC to get IP address automatically and share the printer.

    Since your Internet sharing is already working, you obviously have DHCP already enabled, so you don't need to tinker with that. You need to make sure all of the computers have file and print sharing installed, make sure they all have NETBIOS over TCP/IP configured in the TCP/IP advanced settings, and then share one or more resource in My Computer.

    If you still experience issues seeing computers in Network Neighborhood for some or all of the PC's, I recommend installing NETBEUI protocol on all the machines in addition to TCP/IP. For XP, the NETBEUI files are buried in the ValueAdd directory on the CD, or you can find several places to download them on the net.
