How can I access my music files that are on my Server HD from my laptop while in our house. i

ie; I am down stairs surfing on laptop and want to listen to some files that are my desktop computer upstairs. Basically, I want to share my music file on my server or the computer upsatirs.

Currently running XP and have Linksys. 2.4 Wireless router. I have looked and messed around with networking option in XP but still confused.

Your direction would greatly be appreciated.

Best Regards,

MN

....be sure and have all devices going through the same router. This cost me some time....it's always the obvious. hope it can maybe help someone.

Lastly, a good program that I found was Network Magic. You don't need it, but it's sets up a nice visual one stop editor for sharing, adding and managing (19.99). Setting up a home network for me was a real pain in the A!! If you don't like troubleshooting, pay someone to set this up. I imagine the cost would be somewhere in the neighborhood 160.00

Good luck.
