I have just set up a PC and Wireless laptop via ethernet router/access point.

I can now access the internet via both

However the computer dont 'see' each other and I want to share folders.

What have I missed?

Please help.

Have you set up file sharing by right clicking on the drives in my computer and selecting sharing, then enabling same?

  mouseman 22:07 08 Jul 04

yep...

Have shared C drive on laptop and D drive on PC.

However, it seems both computer only see the router and not each other.

OK
1. What OS is running on each machine?
2. are the workgroup names the same on each machine?

  mouseman 22:16 08 Jul 04

PC running XP Pro
Laptop running XP home

Workgroup names are the same

Thanks for help johnsims

Have you run the network set up wizard and created a floppy for use on the other machine?

  mouseman 22:28 08 Jul 04

Have run network set up but did not make a floppy.

I choose the CD option

hmmm...
You must have everything on the same workgroup.

And the router must be set for LAN.

+ ensure that at least one PC has a share.

But you did take the settings created from one machine to the other and run it again on the second machine using the file on the cd to import settings into second machine?

No? I put the cd in one then the other and ran set up. Cant see how I imported aything
