Networking a Vista laptop and an XP desktop

Hello there,

This is the first time I have done any kind of networking like this and I am struggling to manage it. So please could I have some help.

I have a new vista laptop and an old XP desktop. I would like to put alot of my data (ie: music and videos) onto the new laptop. Please could someone show me a good guide to follow on how to do this.

My desktop is connect by an ethernet cable to a wireless router, I have managed to wirelessy connect to this router on my laptop and I can browse the internet but I’m not sure how to send and receive files :frowning: .

Sorry this is probably an easy problem to solve but I’ve never done anything like this.

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:
