Sharing printers through wireless router

I have just installed a 3com wireless adsl router, to which is connected xp pro desktop and win 2000 pro laptop. Both can access the broadband but I can't seem to work out how to setup the local network in win 2000.

Has anyone any ideas?

how have you configured the network settings?
if you browse the network, do the computers see each other? have you disabled 'simple networking' in the xp pc? are you using dhcp on the pcs and if so is the router configured for this? or are you using static ip addresses?
have you enabled file/printer sharing?
