Home network help....

I have established a wireless home network, and so far I have successfully linked up my printer to my lap top. Now I am trying to access my desktop PC from my lap top. I am running Windows XP on my desktop and Windows 7 on my laptop. Is it possible to accomplish this? If so how? I am at a loss as how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

It is possible. Turn on shared connections in the Network and sharing center on your laptop. On an XP system it should be on by default.

^What he said...Look at the advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is on. Not sure if you need network discovery on for Win7 or not. I've only used Win7 in a domain environment.
