Networking Powerbook 5300 (wireless) and Desktop via Netgear router

I have recently purchased a Netgear wireless router to network my house.  I bought an ORiNOCO card for the Powerbook 5300 and everything is working fine.  Both computers now have internet access, but I cannot do any file sharing between the two.  Any help?

Have you turned on filesharing for one of the computers? Have you shared a folder or disk on the computer with filesharing on? Is appletalk on? Are all the proper filesharing/appletalk extensions installed?

I have filesharing selected on the desktop and I have the appropriate folders shared. Appletalk is active on both computers. All the appropriate extensions are installed.

I have never tried to ping another computer.  How do you do that?

If you're running OS X use the Network Utility. If you're running 9 you can download a ping utility from versiontracker.com.
