How do I Connect Win7 Wireless

How do I connect my Windows 7 laptop (wireless) via my home network to a Windows XP Desktop (wired ethernet) using the same Cisco (WRT54GZ)router and share files. Home Group is not an option.

Hello mflum7,

You would be connecting the Windows 7 laptop to your WRT54GZ router using the Windows wireless connection wizard. The link below shows you how.

Once you get online with your laptop you would then want to set up a Workgroup so you can share files between those two machines. The links below should help you set that up.
