    network/sharing


    I have my network up, I think. I have two desktops hooked up to to a linksys BESFR41 wired router. Both have access to internet. How do I set up my desktops to share documents and files? In a most simplistic way. Like click here, then click this and type in this and your done. What research I have done, seems to speak to those who know at least a little about it. I know nothing about it. I am doing this all on my own. I would like my desktop to be the host computer. Any body have any step by step instructions that I can't mess up. Thanks.

    Same workgroup on both
    Same subnet network
