    I've set up my Linksys router with my Laptop on XP (Wifi) and my Desktop on
    98SE (ethernet wired). Both access internet, e mail etc perfectly but I
    cannot get them to see each other to allow me to share files and my printer
    which is USB off my desktop !!!!!!!!!

  3. Scott, can you check if you are logged on the 98 machine (with a valid
    username/password)? Windows 98 allows to you hit Cancel or ESC at startup
    time which lets you use the computer but can be a problem when you try
    file/printer sharing from an XP machine.
