I am on a Win XP Home edition SP2 machine wired to my DI-524. I have a work
laptop running Win2000 Pro on the router wirelessly to a private VPN. I
would like to share files between these computers. They
cannot see each other over the LAN, I cannot ping them. I have used the
Network Setup Wizard for XP but I can't run that on the 2000 machine. The
connection to the VPN on the laptop works fine and it can see all the
workgroups on that network. I want to have a LAN between these computers. Any
help appreciated.

Do you have the same problem while the laptop is not logged into the VPN?
Have you configured any firewalls properly?

I will look before connecting to the VPN, I don't think any firewalls are
blocking it. I'll check the router firewall.
