Trouble setting up wireless network between Vista & Windows 2000
I have a Vista Laptop working off a wireless network connected to a P2 windows 2000 desktop. I have internet on both, but I can't figure out how to set up a connection between my laptop and desktop so that I can set up a printer and shared folder. I NEED to be able to print to my printer on my desktop from my laptop. Can anyone help me? I'm new to networking, but smart enough to understand what you are saying.
