    More information: Both desktop and laptop are running WinXP Pro SP2. They
    both connect to the internet through a wireless rotuer, which is connected to
    a Vonage router which is connected to the cable modem. I ran the network
    wizard, setup a workgroup, set my firewall (Kerio) so that the IP range was
    in the trusted zone. I am using simple file sharing on both computers.

    Any ideas, experts? Thanks for your consideration.
