    Hi!

    I am new to networking. I have the following setup.

    A DSL broadband connection

    A Dlink G604T - DSL Modem cum Wireless Router.

    Desktop computer using WinXP Home SP2 - Connected to Router with Ethernet

    Laptop using WinXP Home SP2 - Connected to Router with Wi-fi

    I can access the internet from both the desktop and the laptop.

    I want to know how I can access the laptop from the desktop (and visa-versa) using the setup above.
    If possible, kindly give step by step instructions.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reference. It is a great site with very simple instructions.

    But I finally found out that the computers are already networked through the dsl modem-cum-router and all I needed to do was assign the same workgroup name to the computers and share the required files, folders and other resources
