I'm running a Linksys 802.11b wireless network. The router is wired to a desktop computer, which also has two printers attached to it. We have one other desktop on the network, which is attached to the network via a network adapter; a printer is wired to that computer; and we have two notebook computers - one via a wirless network card, and one has a built in 802.11g connection. Although I never have a problem getting the internet connection (cable modem attached to the router) on any of the networked computers, intermittently i'm unable to print to one of the printers (printer not found) and unable to open files on one of the networked computers. The network is secured. Sometimes a reboot handles the problem; sometimes not. All suggestions welcomed.

the desktop attached to the router has windows XP media center, the other desktop has XP home; the laptop with the 802.11g has XP home, and the other laptop has XP professional.

If you have service pack 2 installed, I would go to each computer and disable the Windows Firewall, as it often causes problems with network file/printer sharing.
