    I have a wireless router and a pcmcia radio from netgear in my laptop.
    I can access the laptop from my desktop, but I am unable to access the
    desktop from my PC. Now, I do not really think it is the wireless setup
    as I this same problem with a wired ethernet switch. I am wondering
    though if it might be my windows XP home edition and whether I need to
    upgrade my laptop to Windows XP Pro? I can access my Windows XP Pro on
    my desktop from my Windows 2000 machine with not problem, but not from
    my laptop which has Windows XP home edition on it. Any help would be
    appreciated.
