Networking behind DSL router

I have a desktop that runs Win2k hooked up to a ActionTec DSL router - Internet runs fine.  I have a Win98 laptop hooked up through a wireless d-link router that is cabled to the ActionTec and that connection works fine.  My problem is trying to get either computer to recognize each other on the network neighborhood.  I've installed TCP/IP and Microsoft Client on the Win98.  I've shared folders on both computers but neither one will see the other one.  I only get one IP address which is managed by the ActionTec and gives a signal to either computer, but I want to transfer files between the two over the connection.  Any suggestions?

I am assuming since you are using two different routers you will have to create a static route between the Dlink router and the DSL router.

What model number is your D-Link?  If it's a router, then it will get the one IP from your ISP and assign two new (private) IPs to your PCs.  If your D-Link is a hub, then I'd expect the problem you've described where only one PC gets an IP (and it's an IP from your ISP).
