    I have a WinPC running XP (Home) SP1 connected to a Netgear DG834G Wireless
    router.
    I have upstairs, a MacG4 with an enabled Airport Card. The PC is connected
    to Router via ethernet & the Mac detects and shares the Internet connection,
    no problem.
    What I can't work out is how to get each computer to see each other and
    share files & printer.
    The printer is attached to the PC.
    I will also be adding a second PC fairly soon.
    This is probablybasic stuff, but I'm new to networking.
    Any help most gratefully received.

    Thanks Philip,
    I havn't explored this yet fully but it looks promising.

    Just one thing, how do I establish if the computers can "Ping" each other?
