Default Win 2000 and Win XP Wireless Networking

I have a desktop running Win 2k. I have a laptop running XP home. I have a cable and a purchased a Dlink 524 802.11 g router which came with a wireless cardbus adapter for the laptop. I have printer and file sharing enabled on both computers and the workgroup name is the same. My desktop can't see the laptop and the laptop can't see the desktop. But, I can browse the web on the laptop and the desktop. My desktop is hard wired to the router which is connected to the cable modem. How do I get the computers to see each other in My Network Places so I can share the files and printer between each machine?

Default Edit - Fixed

alright here's an update. I got my laptop to see my desktop providing I turn off zonealarm on my desktop but my desktop can see the laptop in my network places but can't access it.

Oh never mind, I fixed everything.

I can share files and printer. Yeah
