OK, so I am a total networking noob. The way my network is setup, which I assume is pretty much standard, is DSL-modem to WRT45G router to wired desktop PC, and then my Satellite notebook (integrated wireless). Internet works great on both systems, and I am using WEP security, so the router will only talk to this individual laptop. That being said, I am NOT sure how to set up file/print sharing. I've run the sharing setup wizard on both systems (PC = XP Home, Satellite = XP MCE), but can't see the other system. Both systems are running ZoneAlarm firewall. I didn't see any sharing type settings there...I did add the router address to the trusted zone. What am I missing? And please, guide me in noob-talk. :)
Thank you

Zone Alarm is certainly one, and maybe the only, problem. Putting the router's IP into the trusted zone allows communication with the router. Put the entire subnet into the trusted zone to allow other computer(s) on your LAN to access. For example, if your router's IP is 192.168.1.1 then put 192.168.1.0 through 192.168.1.255 into the trusted zone.

Do I have to enter each number individually? Or is there a way to enter it like 0-255? It looks like it has to be entered each one manually.
