Hi, I jus recently got a new desktop computer and a laptop, both run windows vista. I have sucessfully gotten on to the internet with my desktop. Im on AOL broadband and am using a Netgear Wireless router with an intergrated modem. I want to connect my laptop to my desktop to share the internet connection. So I made a wireless network from my desktop.
When I go on my laptop and look for the network I cant find my one, I can see other networks so I know theres nothing wrong with the laptop connection... i just cant see my desktop network from my laptop! Ive tried turning off both of the firewalls and that has acheived nothing.

Any help guys?
