Hi, Hailee - Glad to see you were able to make a new post. Check your
old one btw, because I put information there on how to better use this
newsgroup.

Here are some links with good information to help you visualize what is
going on when you want to share files:

Wireless Network Setup Wizard SP2
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/columns/cabl...

Even though this says it is for Server, it is a good explanation of
wireless networking:
http://www.microsoft.com/WindowsServer2003/techinfo/ove...

And for just general networking:

This Linksys site has good pictures - of course you don't need to use
their equipment:

Hope This Helps,
