    You're looking for Print/File Sharing for Vista systems.

    btw: As writtent, it appears BOTH systems have direct access to an ISP -- is this so?

    Normally we would create a connection to a single ISP like this and use a router to share it
    between systems:
    ISP .... Modem---Router ---(wired/wireless connections)--- multiple systems

    It's setup like this:

    Main pc - wireless modem/router - internet
    laptop - wireless modem/router - internet

    with both these staying the same i also want:

    main pc - wireless mode/router - laptop

    I had it working for a day but when i tried next day i couldn't do it and i can't remember how i did it. It allowd me to wirelessly transefer music and files through the router/modem to my laptop from pc.

    How do i do it again?

    Is it a home group i need or a network? it's all confusing to me....
