Hello,
My wife and I would like to know how to access the wireless laptop that we have connected to our desktop through our router? The internet connection is working fine. Thanks for your help!

You will need to go to the router's setup page to enable wireless, on most routers the default setting is disabled. Use the wired machine to do this. Then you will need to run the Network Connection Wizard on both machines, when they are both on. Make sure the laptop can see the wireless connection when you do this. You also need to make a folder that is shared, preferable on both machines. I find it easier to just make a new folder in C: and set it to shared.

If this doesn't work check any firewalls that you have to see if they are blocking, this is the number one cause of failed network connections. You may need to enable logging.
