Try this: turn off all firewall on the both computers. Can you ping each other by IP?

I am trying to get access to my folders on my Host Computer which is running
Windows XP Pro from my Laptop on a wirless network... I see the my Host
Computer, and I see the router on my Laptop, but when I click on them I am
getting error messages one that says Windows cannot access //xxx which is my
host computer, and then when I click on details of the error messages its
saying the network path is not found.
Then when I get onto my host computer, I can't see my laptop... What do i
need to do to see this, and what do I need to do to get my shared folders to
show up on my laptop which are on my Host computer, which is a desktop. I am
running a wirless network...
Please help me figure this mess out.
