Desktop can see Laptop, but Laptop can't see Desktop!

    I have a simple Wireless network with a Desktop PC connected to a Linksys
    WRT54G Router, which is in turn connected to a Motorola SB5120 Cable Modem.
    I also have a laptop which is set up on a domain for my work. Both PCs
    connect to the Internet perfectly. The desktop can also see the laptop and
    view/change files on it. The laptop, however, can't see the desktop at all.

    I made sure the workgroup on the PC is the same as the domain on the laptop
    and I have set up a user on the laptop the same as the user on the desktop.

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can get the laptop to "see" the desktop?
