Network problem with XP pro and XP home

    I have Desktop - XP Home and Laptop - XP Pro. I set up the home
    network on the XP Home with name "HomeNet". Now, in the network places
    of the Desktop (XP Home) I see the desktop under "HomeNet" group.
    Now, the laptop is connected through Wireless network to the router. I
    can neither see "HomeNet" through the laptop, neither I can connect to
    the Desktop.
    Similarly, the Desktop cannot see the Laptop.

    I'm having McAfee firewall on Desktop. Do I need to tweak any settings
    in firewall?

    What can be other issue for this?

    Please help, thanks in advance.

  2. With McAfee disable, can you ping each other by IP?
