I have a new laptop (Vista Home Premium) wirelessly linked to a wireless G router and an old desktop (XP Professional) wired by network cable to that router. Both can successfully access the internet. I want to move all my work permanently from desktop to laptop. I have a new install of Office on the laptop. Beyond that what is the easiest procedure for transferring files. I was told by someone in a computer store that this could be done via the router but it's not obvious how. I can't view the source and destination computer from either of the computers. If this is explained somewhere on a technical website please point me to it. If I can also somehow tranfer the settings for all my Office programs that would be wonderful too. Thanks.
