Maybe I did not explain myself well
I have 2 vista pcs
A desktop and a laptop They both connect wirelessly to the internet separately
I want to be able to share files between them and also share my printer that is installed on the desktop pc with the laptop.
Just don't know where to start

"They both connect wirelessly to the internet separately"

Are you talking about wireless mobile broadband using USB Modems that operate on cellphone technology? Are you paying two monthly accounts?

If not then what type of connection are you using?

If you have 2 Internet connections which are used by 2 computers separately, probably you just need to have single Internet and use wireless router to share internet and file/printer between 2 computers. It could save you some money too.

If each computer uses separate Internet connection, it's not that possible to have file/printer sharing between them.

You need to set each computer in same workgroup, after that enable file or printer sharing on computer, so that could be shared with other computer. Good luck...
