Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:
Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.
On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)
Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.
Do this on each PC and Laptop.
That should be it or darned near close.

check if your dell wireless card is properly installed. to do so, right click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop (or click start > right click my computer), then click on properties. Click on the hardware tab and go to device manager. a small box will appear which will list all of the hardware installed on your computer. click on the positive (+) sign beside network adapter, and make sure that it will show your dell wireless 1397 wlan card without any exclamation point or question mark beside it. if it does have the yellow ! or ? beside it, it means it's not properly installed or it's not yet installed so you might have to use the cd to install it. If you don't have the cd, download the driver from this site, http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R189133&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=259099 (xp).
if it is, make sure that your laptop is detecting your network from your westell 327w. to check, click start, connect to and click on wireless connections. on the wireless connections window, click on the name of your network and disconnect (if its connected already) and try to connect again.
if this doesn't solve the problem, try to click on START > RUN and on the pop up box, type in NCPA.CPL. on the network connections window, right click on the active wireless connection and click on properties. click once on tcp/ip settings to highlight the item and click on properties on the lower portion of the box. on the general tab, make sure that obtain ip address and obtain dns server is set to automatic. click on the alternate configuration tab and make sure that it's set to automatic as well.
that should solve the problem. if it doesn't try to post again what happened on this thread. thanks.

SOURCE: wlan light orange
Orange WLAN light means no connectivity to the network. Try to reconnect to your wireless network and make sure to enter the correct wireless settings like the network key and SSID.

Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.

Try without using Wireless Encryption (password).
Try changing channels; default is 6; try 1 or 11.
Change your SSID: personalize it
SSID broadcast: Enable
Check the advanced wireless settings and make sure MAC filtering - DISABLED.
Reset the Linksys router by pressing RESET for 30 seconds should everything fails and re-configure. Firmware is another consideration BUT this is just a new release.
