    I did a clean reinstall of XP on my main computer and used the files and
    settings transfer wizard. I was up and running fine. My laptop connects to
    the internet fine thru my wireless router.
    My problem is that I cannot configure the wireless network to enable file
    and printer sharing. Everytime I run the "network setup wizard", I get an
    message that there was an error and either to configure it manually or run
    the wizard again.
    Any suggestions??

  2. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network
    settings,http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html As well as specific adjustment of
    each computer according to what it is allowed to be shared.
    Basic XP -

    Advanced XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304040
    Printer Sharing XP -
