How can I setup this home network?

Hey guys,

I have some problems setting up my home network .. any help will be
greatly appreciated.

My network is currently setup as such

DSL Modem
|
|->Server/Router (machine running on windows XP)
|
|->Netgear Wireless Router
| |
| |->Laptop (connected wireless running on XP)
|
|->Computer A (connected wire running on XP)

The problem with this setup is that my laptop cannot see and access
Computer A (probably becos the wireless router and laptop is on its own
sepearate subnet?).

Is there a way I can connect my laptop to computer A with this setup?

We've had really bad experiences with many routers and so we cannot go
for modem->wireless router->Server/Router instead.

Any pointers would really help! Thank you in advance!

You could do it correctly, modem > router > computers.

Turn off the router and DHCP features of your wireless router, make it only
a wireless access point - the manual and/or Netgear site will have
instructions on how to do this.
