Home Network Help

Ok i just bought a Laptop and I'm trying to get a home network setup. I have a linksys wireless router setup with my cable modem and my desktop is running off enthernet from the router and my laptop is running wireless.

I have the wireless secured with WAP, and i'm only allowing the laptops MAC address to use the wireless connection so I'm good on the internet side.

The problem is i need to get the file sharing and print sharing to work. I used the wizard on both computers to setup a network and I can see the laptop folders that i a allowed sharing on my desktop computer, but i can't see my desktop at all from my laptop? I can transfer files ect from my desktop to the laptop, but i want to go the other way as needed, and I need to be able to share the printer thats on my desktop... Any idea's, no matter what i try the desktop computer won't show up on my laptop (print and file sharing is turned on)
