I agree that the two computers should be on the same network and I think my desktop was set up wrong in the beginning, but I can't get Netgear to help me. I have now even tried hard wiring the laptop into the router, but the desktop cannot get access to it and the laptop doesn't see the desktop on its network. Since the laptop is on the correct network, I just need to find a way to change the name or location of the net the desktop is on. I have looked into the setup info of the router but I am not knowledgeable enough to know what I am looking for. Thanks for your help.
