    I have a small home network i'm tryiing to setup. It consists of a desktop
    workstation (XP) and the printers connected to it. It is connected via
    ethernet to a D-link 4 port wireless router. The cable modem it connected to
    the WAN conecteion of the router. I have 2 laptops (XP) I am going to connect
    to network with there wireless connection.
    I want to use XP's programs and not a 3rd much as you can. I worked with PC's and networks a long time but this
    wireless connection and security is new to me. Thank you for your help.

    Put all the computers in the same room and configure them to have an
    Internet connection.

    Configure the Wireless to work with the Router but leave the security Off.

    When all the computers can access the Internet, configure each computer File
    Sharing system.

    When the Internet and sharing works well take care of the Wireless Security.

    General Installation of Network here,
