Hi everyone... I'm having problems to network my computers wirelessly...

I just bought an HPdv6358se laptop with Vista Home Premium... I bought this along with a D-Link WDA-1320 wireless g desktop adapter and a lynksys router model WRT54G... By the way.. my desktop has Windows XP installed..

So to sum it up.. I now have wireless internet in both computers so the router do is working... What i can't manage to get to work is networking both computers in order to be able to share files, etc.

I have disabled firewall... The workgroup name is the same in both computers... i clicked in the option of being able to share files when creating the workgroup in xp.. and in vista i've already enabled to allow sharing of files... but still nothing.. i can't get to any computer recognize the other and connect..

I've ran out of ideas of what it could be... I've got norton internet security 2007 in the laptop and trend micro internet security 2006 in the desktop...

So if anyone could help me with ideas of why it could be that they are not connecting and helping me achieving it.. I will really apreciate it..

Thanks in advance..

Hi ozcar.

I have the same setup and am trying the trial version of Network Magic. You can no doubt go in and do it all yourself but this makes it so easy, I'll probably buy it.
