I have a desktop computer running WinXp Home connected via an ethernet cable to a Netgear wireless router then to broadband modem.
I have just got a Compaq laptop running Vista Home Basic that is connected to router wirelessly.
Both connect to the internet perfectly.
What I want to know is how to make the 2 computers "talk" to each other so if I work on files on one computer it will update the other. Is it possible to link the computers through the router or do I have to have a wireless card in the desktop too? Is this possible to do without copying to movable media first? I have an external h/d that I use for backups and have been copying from that but if it could be automated it would be easier. I read a bit about Briefcase but when I tried that I just made a mess of my files.
Could someone offer my some advice as I am getting more confused by the minute. Might be easier if both o/s were the same.
Any help appreciated!
