Cant setup internet connection between XP and Vista

By Siliconwombat ·
This is probably the most confusing netwrok Ive ever tried to setup!

computer 1

Desktop running XP with a usb modem and AOL

Computer 2

Laptop running Vista


Belkin G+ Wireless router

Ive managed to get the laptop to 'see' ans upposedly connect to the desktop but it wont find the internt connection nor the printer attached to the desktop or any shared files on the desktop.

The main thing is the internet connection, I want to avoid the expense of changing modem to an RJ45 one. Will the network work and if not hopw should UI change it, if it will work how do I get it too?

Thanks in advance

Have you considered ICS,to which you could run as a small soho setup,the only thing I see that may be a problem is AOL
for some reason it does not want to setup wizard with XP.
