Specs: Windows XP and vista, pentium 4/ 1GB
I've never tried setting up a network before, but
I'd like to get one going for file and printer

I have a desktop (windows XP home)
connected via cat5 to a 2wire 2700HGV-B
router, a Compaq and a Dell laptop ( both
Vista Home premium) connected by wireless
to the internet through the 2700HGV-B.

What do I need to do (in baby steps) to set up
file and printer sharing between the three

If I've missed any info you need let me know.

Right Click on your C: drive -> Select Properties -> Select the Share Tab and check the Share As box and use the defaults.

From the other computers Right Click the start button -> Select Explore -> Scroll down to Network and Double Click -> Double Click the computer you setup the Share on -> Double Click the Drive.

Do the Same for printers and read the Microsoft Tech Papers on setting up WORKGROUPS.
