Hello,my desk top is a bit old running xp pro 2gig memory

my son-in-law just gave me an inspiron 1501 running Windows 7 64 also 2 gig memory

I use ATT 2wire dsl router (I know, I know) so I can get on line with WiFi for laptop

running cat 6 would not be a problem for me

how do I create a Lan

have at least two printers hooked to desktop

and would like to tie in later lenovo r32 that is used just to keep XL spreadsheets on
If the router has ethernet ports, just hook up the equipment to that, it will assign IP address to the rest of the equipment. Then just share out whatever resources you want form the computers. http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/share-files-and-printers-between-windows-7-and-xp/
