Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have two computers running XP service pack 3 connected wirelessly to a adsl modem/router. They both access the internet without problems but I would like them to be networked to share files and printers. No matter how I try to set up a wireless network it never works. I have no trouble if I connect to the router with cables.

Answers :

Go to control panel ->network connections ->lan .

Disable LAN connections.

And try for sharing .

Also Check for any virus in both systems . Sometimes virus blocks sharing of networks .
