    That shouldnt be the problem.

    You should still be able to see all the PC's on the network. Make sure all the computers (including the laptop) are on the exact same worgroup.

    What OS are you using btw ??

    make sure they both are on workgroup mshome or both are some other name that you pick and i think that the users have to be adminstrator privelidged.

    Nah, I have the only administrator accounts on our computers and the whole family can access all shares from all computers.

    Although I have no experience of wireless networking, the only reasons for the machines' lack of communication are (in order of likelihood)...
    - different workgroup names
    - identical computer names
    - firewalls unaware of the home network, in which case allow unrestricted access to/from machines with ips in the range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255, that should do it. Make sure you have adequate antivirus measures deployed on both machines.
    - wireless access point mis-configured
    - faulty wireless card in the laptop
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?
