I now have two computers in my house. Desk Top is running
XP Pro, Dell Pent 4. Laptop XP Home, Fugitsu.Wireless
router Linksys 2.4 G 54.Cable Modem digital broadband.
Question: Both will send and receive internet MSN. Problem
is laptop can't contact printers. No problem with desk
top.and Laptop can't contact Desk Top. The most important
thing to me is how do I get the laptop to contact printers?
Have tried several configurations of My Home Network thru
Wizzard to no avail. Help!

Run the Network Setup Wizard again on both computers and tell it that
they connect to the Internet through a "residential gateway". Other
options will block file and printer sharing.
