    setting up

    Hi, i am completley new to setting up a home network. I have a desktop with XP and laptop with vista, i can get both on the internet through my wirless hub (inventel livebox), this was more luck than design. I cannot however get my printer to share or indeed my files. What basic steps do I need to take. I have tried and tried the seemingly various routes that come with windows yet to no avail and i am becoming increasingly frustrated with finding anything of relevant substance on the web.
    Thanks Darren.

    The printer MUST be shared, and then on the VISTA machine, open My Network Places. Scroll down to the XP machine, and find the shared printer, Right click the entry and select "Connect".

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
