We have two computers linked by a USRobotics Wireless

connection. Both computers run Windows XP and connect to the internet just fine. The connection is WEP enabled. There are firewalls on both Computers

What I'd like to do is access files on the primary computer via the secondary computer, specifically music downloads, but including other files as well.

How do I do this?

the Home Networking Wizard in "My Network Places" yet?

You may find that one or both of the software firewalls may have to be told to allow the network. I don't know about the USRobotics router. It may have a built in firewall.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
