Setting up a network one pc wired one wireless

By Ralf23456 ·
I am posting here as the ask a Question option game me and error.

I have 2 xp pc, one wired and one wireless.
Both connect to the same router a Belkin Wireless G router. I've tried running the network setup wizards on both machines(the wireless setup W on the other machine) but after running the wizards there are no machines listed under MSHOME workgroup.

I can ping both machines from each one so they must be talking to each other.
And both machines can use the internet fine. My main goal is to share a printer and perhaps share files.

I've tried turning off the Windows firewalls and still nothing works...

Here you need to open the Belkins Setup Page

And enable the Wireless and Wired Networks to communicate with each other. By Default in most of the Belkin Products this is turned off so you are unable to communicate between the Wired and Wireless Networks running on the same device.

There is a PDF File on the CD that came with the Belkin and the instructions to do this are listed in that.
