It is because you have two connections that may cause the routing issue. Posting the result of ipconfig /all may help.

Have desktop PC (Windows xp) and when I connect (Ethernet/LAN) my Laptop,
(VISTA), yes they do see each other and I can swap files.
My internet connection is wireless through a shared system with a neighbor.
When I am using the wireless internet connection, then the LAN connection
does not work and the desktop/laptop cannot see each other.
Worked previously running XP only, but with VISTA, No Go?
