    Problem:
    Computer 1 is connected to Wireless router (Air link 101 or AR670W)
    through Ethernet, but computer 2 is connected to the router wirelessly. I have a printer connected to computer 1.

    I want to share files and the printer with computer 2 but I don't know how to do that. I know that this is easy for both computer connected the same way using wired or wireless.

    Note:I have Windows XP SP3 in both computers.

    edit:
    I have share document in share mode for both computer. I try to open Mshome in "My Network places" and here the result:

    In computer 1(Wired), I can not access Mshome when I click on " View workgroup computers"

    In computer 2, I see both computer 1 and 2. I can access the share document of 2 but I can not access computer 1

    Assuming you enabled file and printer sharing a likely problem is a non-Windows firewall on computer 1.
