Hi I connect to the internet via my wireless Laptop. My PC which is connected to a Speetouch 580 router is ethernet to the router. I have no problems using the internet but, I cannot share files with the other computer. Can someone tell me how to get BOTH computers to share files. I am not very technical so please, easy steps. Kind regards EV

Basically,in each PC, you need to set the folders that you want to have available over the network as "shared" by right clicking and selecting the Sharing option. In Windows 7, you will need to set the permissions and networking will be simpler if you're logged into both computers with the same Username/Password.
