Running 10.04; Ive acquired a laptop and am trying to network it wirelessly with 3 already networked (wired) desktop PCs; replacing regular router with a new wireless one. The laptop & router are setup with WPA-PSK encryption.

The laptop connects wirelessly to the internet, and the desktops connect to the internet and each other through wired LANs of the wireless router. The desktops see and can open the files on the laptop and each other but.....

Although the laptop "sees" the names of the 3 desktops it will not open their directories.

What am I missing?
