I just got a Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless N Home Router (WRT160N). I have a PC and a Laptop connected to it successfully for www access. PC is wired Laptop is WiFi. Now I'm attempting to set up file and printer sharing between the PC & Laptop. So far only my PC can see the Laptop on homenetwork but my Laptop does not connect to the PC. If the PC does not have the wireless adaptor but the Laptop does is this still possible to do this via the WiFi router or do I need a wireless adaptor for the PC? Thanks in advance for your help.

Sir, what is the point of you posting your suggestions when you don't even seem to bother to read what I have posted. I try to be as descriptive as possible and then I get this uninsightfull suggestion.There were a lot of clues that the wifi switch would be on. .Why don't you ask me if my PC power is on while you were at it???

I realize LELA will not help me with the wireless home networking. I've posted this diagram for reference only. It does technically show you that all of the computers are connected to the router. Also I have never indicated that my laptops operating system is Vista. But never the less allow me to clarify things a bit.
I'm pretty sure he reason being is that when I run XP's Setup a wireless network for a home or small office, from the laptop and then on the PC run the settings generated on the flash drive I get the following message. The wizard cannot create a wireless network, either because a wireless network adapter is not installed or because software for the wireless adapter is not installed. Thus this is the limiting factor.When you say my router should not be SSID, what do you mean by that. Could this be the problem?
