  1. Hi,

    my desktop has windows xp pro, our laptop media centre edition. Both computers have wireless ports.

    Can I easily set it up so that I can transfer files from the desktop to the laptop?

    cheers

    Not easily, but it can be done. What;s wrong with a USB cable.

    Nothing wrong with a usb cable, but I don't have one and am trying to get this file transferred today if I can.

    Setup Windows File Sharing.

    It can be a real pain sometimes but you have a pretty straightforward setup. Here's some info and steps that should hopefully get it all done for you
