    Here's my setup:

    xp wireless home network with xp sp2 desktop as host connected to
    adsl internet via Linksys wrt54gs wireless router. Client is wireless
    xp sp2 laptop.

    Here's my two problems:

    Laptop has got wireless internet fine and can see files on host but
    can't see/share printer attached to desktop. (problem 1)

    Desktop has got internet fine but can't see files on wireless laptop.
    (Problem 2)

    Any help/guidance would be much appreciated,

    Thanks,
    Jon.

  2. File and Print Sharing should be enabled.

    To enable or disable file and printer sharing, you must be logged on to the
    computer as an administrator to complete the procedure.

    Open Windows Firewall.
    On the Exceptions tab, do one of the following:
    To enable file and printer sharing, select the File and Printer Sharing
    check box.
    To disable file and printer sharing, clear the File and Printer Sharing
    check box.
