    I recently acquired a Netgear G54/N150 wireless router with the
    intention of setting up a wireless network among my home desktop and
    laptops. The router is connected to the XP SP3 desktop and I had hoped
    to be able to share files via the Win 7 laptops, but I am not having any
    luck so far. I can see the wireless router (along with various
    neighbors) on the laptop, but I either can't connect or when I do I end
    up with limited connectivity and I haven't been able to access the XP
    files at all. I have been trying to track down some step by step
    tutorials on the web, but the ones I've read so far either have too
    little information or are missing relevant info in the better tutorials.
    Can someone suggest a detailed, beginners tutorial for my subject
    mentioned task that is easy to understand, doesn't miss or assume steps
    taken, and also includes the proper security measures to be taken?
    Thanks in advance.
