Hi All,

I don't think I really have a problem I just don't know what I'm doing and would appreciate any help.

I have a laptop with Windows 7 installed and I want to be able to access programs from it on a desktop computer with XP installed. The desktop has better monitors and sound etc. I have connected both computers to an RCA digital broadband modem model#: DCM425 with an ethernet cable. How do I make them talk to each other?
