Im trying to share files between a laptop and pc using a Linksys wireless WRT54G gateway modem the gateway modem is connected to the pc and im using a wireless laptop can this be done please can you help me with this query thanks
Are you trying to just share files on the two machines hard disks (and maybe a printer), or share access to the gateway modem from both pc's?
Sharing files and printers is easy. The shared internet connection is supposed to be easy, however there are quite a few things that block Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). Like firewalls, virus blockers, system cleaners, etc.

If this is a Windows O/S, then sharing resources between machines is no different if the machines were all wire connections. You configure the O/S on the machines to share resources between machines and it has nothing to do with what type of connection wire or wireless the machines are using.
The link covers all the Windows O/S(s) and how to configure them to share resources and it makes no difference wired or wireless.
From your description, you can share the internet connection, but are having probs with the file/printer sharing over the network. For that (printer and file sharing) you don't need the address, since it is all Local Area Networking
There are many ways, but the way I do it, is just to start windows explorer, point to the folder (or root) of what I want to share, and right click and select sharing and security, and follow the prompts. As a security measure, file sharing is turned off/disabled unless you specifically turn it on. For the printer, I go to control panel, select printers and faxes, select the printer, right click on it and select properties, select the sharing tab and put in the info.
Nothing wrong with network places, I just do it differently, and can't give you the steps for that way.
Suggesti> im able to share internet accsess no problem

Like that's going to stop K-Cunt from doing anything. ;-) So, I might as well dog her out on GP when the opportunity presents itself. Life is short and then you die so one might as well have a little fun. :)
