I know I'm looking at something simple, I just can't see the forest for the trees.

Small network consisting of :

One old desktop
One old laptop
One Linksys Wireless Access Point/Router

Desktop can see shared folders on laptop.

Laptop can not see shared folders on desktop.
Laptop can not access shared internet connection.
Both problems on ethernet connection and wireless.

I'm logged in with admin privs on both.

I have run network setup wizard on both.
Both machines were loaded from the same cd of XP pro.

I had another laptop on the network that worked normally and could see both other systems. It was loaded from the same XP Pro cd.

What am I missing?
