I have a linksys wireless router connected to a desktop and I am try to
connect another deesktop & a laptop to it. The other desktop connects fine,
but althouigh the laptop connects to the Internet it does not connect to the
LAN and allow printer/file sharing.

I can ping the desktop from the laptop connected to the router but I can't
ping the laptop from the desktop..

Any ideas?

Most of the advice recommends disably any wirewalls etc. My laptop came with
Norton Internet Securitry & Nortoin Anti-Virus software pre-loadede. Do you
know how I disable them? If I just click on Norton INternet Security &
choose "Allow Traffic" I can't access the Internet at all.

I don't see where the advice says to disable the firewalls. It says to
uninstall them.

Use Add/Remove Progams in the Control Panel and please read the rest of the
directions more carefully, as computers are very finicky over exactness.

Disabling the Norton Firewall (which came pre-installed) did the trick.

Thanks for you help.
