  2. Hi
    Wireless is just a replacement to a Wire.
    If you have a Wireless, connection through a Wireless Cable/DSL Router
    (Access Point), and it is working correctly (E.g. you can surf the Internet)
    you can omit the word Wireless from the other functions that you would like
    to use.
    In order to Share Files Printers music etc., you have to set a Network that
    can Share (wire or wireless it is the same).
    That can help you to start.
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
