I have a home network with a wireless router, a desktop wired to the router, and a wireless laptop. I cannot ping the desktop from the laptop by hostname, but I can ping it by IP address. When I go to the run box, I can type \\hostname\c$ and I can view the harddrive. When I try to view the laptop's harddrive with the same command from the desktop, it doesn't work. What can I do?

It sounds like a DNS issue.
Is your router configured to pass traffic through or is it configured to hand out IP addresses, and perform NAT/PAT, to the wireless clients (is DHCP running).
