I have a network with two laptops connected to it, one wired (called HERMES) and one wireless (g)(called Aphrodite). Both are Windows 7 Ultimate. The gateway used is Netgear WNDR4500.
Somehow, although both are connected to the same network (or so I think). The wired computer is connected to a home group called Uri's Home and the wireless is connected to Uri's Home 2. I do not know why, it is certainly not intentional. On the wireless computer I can't see the wired one and on the wired one I can see the wireless but I cannot access it (all shares are correct)
I enclosed a screen shot of the network as seen from the wired laptop (HERMES). What is the meaning of the question mark.
How do I correct the situation?
Thanks a lot in advance for any, any idea

Thanks alot for your educative help you are offering. I have a small problem with my Inspirion E1405 Dell Laptop. I was given by a friend and it had a 80 Gb hard drive and wireless was working well ,because wherever i powerd my computer, i could see it could pick wifi signal. Then i had to change the HardDisk after the original one crashed. Since then i haven't been unable to connect to any wifi. Itried to run a network set up, it just to start. This is the current settings

Are there any yellow marks in Device Manager? Sounds like you may not have installed the Wireless driver. You can get it from support.dell.com.
