Could not share resources between desktop and laptops.

In my home's network. I use one wireless route to connect to my desktop with wire, and other laptops use on wireless. In any circumstances, i couldn't share folder between my destop and all other laptops in the same workgroup. Also, I couldn't ping the desktop's IP from laptop, verse too. So, i couldn't share documents between my desktop and laptops, printers and all other network resources. I tried many settings but still couldn't work.

Is there any help?

    If you can use the resources when connected via the wired LAN, then check your router settings. Some have a setting to keep PC's private so they can't be accessed by 3rd parties. Disable that function.
