    I have file sharing set up on both computers. Laptop connects using Netgear
    wireless router. I can see the desktop and laptop shared files on laptop's
    "My Network Places" but can only see desktop shared files on desktop netowrk
    places. I can connect to the laptop through "View Workgroup Computers" but
    that seems to be an unnecessary step. How can I get my files to show on the
    desktop "My Network Places" Thanks in advance
