Networking Computers With Vonage Device & Qwest DSL Router

I am trying to figure out how to network my laptop with my desktop. I have a Qwest DSL Wifi router. My desktop computer is hooked up to a Vonage device/router and then the Vonage device is connected to the DSL router. My laptop is connected to the Qwest router by Wifi. Also, the deskop and Vonage device are setup with a static IP. Is there any way to network between my desktop and laptop so I can do file sharing?

I unplugged my desktop from the Vonage device and plugged it into the Qwest router and now I am able to do file sharing. I thought my desktop had a static IP set but I don' t know what is going on with that. I notice that I can download torrents with the desktop hooked up to the Qwest router. Almost seems like you don't have to set these things up for port forwarding anymore.
