make sure they both have the same network name.

so one computer isnt trying to conenc to "laptopnetwork1" while the other one connects to "networkhome" etc

you can specify the name of the network when you set up a network using the windows XP "add network" function.

Usually if you're only using the wireless thats the one that'll show up and windows has a 'Show Available Wireless Networks'

MSHOME is the Windows default workgroup. Do not confuse this with your Wireless Service Set Identifier, or SSID. To change your workgroup in XP+ computers, go to Control Panel :: System :: Computer Name and click the Change Workgroup button. You will need to restart afterwards. This must be changed on every computer as it is P2P based; you are not all connecting to one server that defines the workgroups of all connected computers.

To changed your Wireless' SSID, you must user a router configuration panel or change the setup if you're using a home built access point. This is what people seeing your wireless connection will view your network as.
