Hello,
Thanks for the reply. I don't know if the router hands out IP address. One IP address on the network is 192.168.1.2. Ipconfig says that DHCP is enabled.
Thanks!

Hello,
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?
Thanks!

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).
