Home network problem

I have set-up a home network for my desktop and notebook computers. I am
running XP Pro on my desktop and XP Home on the notebooks. All use wireless
networking connected to the Internet via a wireless modem/router.

Internet access worked perfectly on all systems.

But I can't get my home network to work.

I have tried to share the printer that is physically connected to my desktop
system. This printer works correctly (using my desktop PC).

My notebook sees this shared printer when I list the available printers
(Control Panel -> Printers) but nothing happens when I try to print. I have
tried adding a new printer but this process does not see my shared printer.

I have also shared folders on both the desktop and notebook systems. But I
can't see these shared folders on any system.

When I try to use My Network Places I see my home network (called "Home")
but when I try to access it I get the following message: "Home is not
accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource."

I think that my printing problem is linked to my network problem.

Help!

Cheers.

Bobby
