    with VISTA HOME BASIC 32BIT (laptop) may connect WLAN ( Thomson tg585 v7 modem/router) with VISTA 32BIT HOME PREMIUM (desktop) ? May share printer or files wirelessly if modem is connected to desktop ?



    Basically what ever we do via cables/LAN we may do via wireless/WLAN for networking (with above PCs&Modem) ?

    From what you wrote, I gather that what you want to do is have a printer connected to one Vista machine and share that printer with a second Vista machine, Yes, you can do that.



    However, there have been problems reported with Vista not installing the correct drivers for remote printers. So, what you might have to do is install the printer locally to the second Vista machine first (to load the drivers into the cache), disconnect the printer, and with the same printer hooked up to the first machine, install it a second time as a network printer.
