    file and printer sharing in VISTA wireless network

    Hi, I have a PC and a Laptop, both are working on Vista home premium. the PC
    is connected to a printer via USB and a direct connection to a d-link router,
    the laptop is connected to the network by wireless connection. both computers
    are on the same work group.
    when I try ro see the network map I can see both computers, but when I want
    to see the devices for sharing files and printers, they don't see each other.
    file and printer sharing is enabled.
    what can i do?

    Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.

    I did what's written in the articles above, now I can share files, but whenI
    try to share the printer it says "not enough memory", but I have a powerful
    computer and laptop. I tried to installt the printer on a new local port
    "\\computername\printershare name" but i can't create the port because
    "access denied". I am the adminstrator on both computers.
