Hey guys. I've had my desktop and laptop sharing files for over a year,and also printing from my laptop to the printer hooked up to the desktop through my Netgear router(WNR 1000). Just recently I haven't been able to do any of this and I don't know why. I haven't made any changes,it just stopped working. I noticed it first when I couldn't get the printer to work from my laptop,then I noticed I couldn't access the files on the desktop from the laptop,but I could access the files on the laptop from the desktop,but even that has stopped working. I've re-done all the network wizards on both computers,and re installed the printer drivers,but nothing works. It did start working for a short while,once I put the laptop closer to the desktop,but that doesn't work now. Any suggestions on what it could be?

laptop is a Dell Latitude D620 running Windows XP Professional SP3
Desktop is emachines W3052 running Windows XP Home SP3
