I need to know how to connect them and then all of the settings for both computers to be configured at so the both connect. Thanks for your help.
If you have a local area network inside. All you need to share files. Find the other side of the IP can be. For example: / / 192.168.0.1 so to be able to jump out of a password. On the note in order to succeed.

only way I can think of doing that is if you used a cross over cat 5e network cable between the desktop and laptop and assigned static ip addresses to them so your desktop would have 192.168.1.2 and your laptop would have 192.168.1.3 both with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and on the desktop put the default gateway as the laptops ip address.
Not sure if you would have to use internet connection sharing on the desktop to get it to work as ive never done it that way.
Would be a lot easier to just connect the desktop via a network cable directly to your router ( assuming you have a router ) if not buy a router and use that instead.
you could try getting a wifi adapter and creating an access point, you can connect that way if your ps3 has wifi I have a laptop with windows XP Pro and have been trying that my desktop PC with Vista Home can see it. MY Components: -Desktop PC with Vista Home (Main PC, connected to Internet with Ethernet to a Linksys Wireless Router B and G). -Get internet thru cable TV (broadband),from this cable modem plugs to router and from router to PC Vista(desktop) -Linksys Wireless G/B Router -G-Card for my Laptop Windows XP Pro and -Playstation 3 capable of sharing info and use printer
At the moment all of them have internet w different IP's (000.000.0.001, 000.000.0.002,etc.). What I want to achieve is that I can use the Printer that is connected via USB to my PC Vista (desktop) and share files. Right now the only thing been able to do is that my PC Vista see my Laptop but Can't find my PC on my laptop. Anybody, Help? -When I turn On my media sharing in my PS3, my internet on Laptop loses it while PS3 search and find,then, because laptop lost wireless,the PS3 looses the laptop and I get wireless back. I knowis a stupid setting but tired of workin back n forth. Thanks
you have the internet on desktop pc and you want to connect your laptop right?
open control panel select network set up wizzard and follow instructions for shared network.
if you connect dsl to notebook you need to have installed modem device drivers and configured device and done basically everything you had to do on pc,by disconnecting dsl from pc obviosly youre gonna lose the internet.
get your self a wireless router if not already have one , that way you set up pc wired and link laptop via wireless
Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable. put the my network places on your desktop. right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties right click on wireless and bridge devices they are now sharing the same ip be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely. that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
