Can't wireless network Windows XP and Windows 7 computers together

I have a desk top computer with Windows XP OS and a lap top with Windows 7 OS. Both computers access the internet through a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and Wild Blue satellite system. I want to network these computers together so that files from each computer can be accessed by the other and the printer connected to the desk top can also be used by the lap top. I am not very computer literate and my repeated efforts to network these computers together have not been successful. I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks

Thanks for the suggestion

I've been to this site before and tried the procedure. But I could have messed it up. So I'll try again from scratch.
I'll let you know how it works out.
Thanks again

Still no joy. I guess it could be a firewall issue. But I've chased that around some before with no luck. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
