So I live in a two family house.
There is a wireless router running off a Windows 7 machine downstairs.
Up here, I have a Windows 7 laptop connecting to the wireless network.
Directly next to that, is a desktop machine connected to the internet, via internet connection sharing through an ethernet cable, from the laptop next to it.
I recently acquired another laptop, running Windows XP, and would like to connect that, if for nothing else than file sharing, to the desktop and laptop upstairs.
I really think I should be able to do this pretty easily, but I'm stumbling.
Can anyone kindly offer some sagely advice?
