I am trying to set-up a wireless network between my HP desktop (XP SP2) and
my new Gateway laptop (also XP SP2).  I can share the broadband connection
through my Westell Versalink router, but cannot share files/printers.

I have run the Wireless Setup Wizard, released and renewed the IP addresses.
Laptop IP is coming up as 192.168.1.47  If I ping, it times out and loses
all 4 packets.

Either I am overlooking something simple, or something is wrong with my
router.

Any suggestions?
