Home network w/ XP pro desktop and Vist Home pro laptop
I bought a new laptop w/ Vista Home Pro and hooked it up thru a wireless network with my Desktop computer running XP pro. Both run fine separately but I would like to access my home computer desktop with my remote laptop. The Desktop computer is hooked to the Linksys wireless G by hardwire and the laptop is wireless. I don't want to load redundant software on the smaller (160 gig) Toshiba HD and the desktop computer too. Can I access the desktop computer software by laptop? If so, How? Thank you

As your printer is not wireless itself you need to shared the printer. To enable this goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing. Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer). Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this. Hope this helps,www.PuterCare.com
Go to the router configuration and change the options so you could use both of them, there is an option says only one type of connection or both of them, change it to both, and everything will be fine.
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.
