Ive just brought a nice new laptop and im looking for a simple way of connecting it to my desktop to transfer small files e.g.word/excel documents etc. and use the printer connected to my desktop. i dont want to go the wireless route, its a bit too expensive, as i will only be using the network occasionally for example, when the kids want to print out stuff for their homework etc.. just a few wires i can leave connected to my desktop for when i need to print from the laptop would suffice.. Any help? i have found a bit of info here at aD, but i really could do with an 'idiots guide' as i am a qualified idiot. Thanx!
