I have my cable modem hooked into my Linksys wireless B broadband router. My Replay TV and my desktop computer both hook into the router and work fine. I just received my new Dell notebook today with wireless B already in it, and I can connect from anywhere in the house with great reception.

The problem is: if I am working downstairs on the laptop, how can I access the files on my upstairs desktop? I know it must be something simple, but I NEED HELP!!!

If you're running Windows XP Pro on both machines, you can add both the
computers to a common domain (workgroup). To do this:

You will need to be the administrator on both machines. Right click on My
Computer -> Computer Name tab -> Change ->Check "Workgroup" and specify any
name, say "mynetwork". You will need to follow the same procedure on both
machines.

Next, you can add any files that you want to share to the "Shared Files"
folder and you should be setup. For more information on how you can do this,
you can refer to the procedure here:
