Default Need help networking

Okay I read through things here, but do not understand yet. This is what I have, 2 computers, both running windows xp sp2, a laptop running xp sp2... I cannot get any of the to communicate. I have DSL and a linksys 54mbps. The laptop is wireless, the regular computers are dsl wired. I am running earthlink. Everythng in the help sections of all the computers say I need a hub??

Can anyone help?

I am using internet security nortons on the wireless. Because I work on line..

I will answer all questions to my ability as I am new to networking..

Thanks

You do not need more hardware.

Log to this page it has a lot of links to instructions to Windows Network Settings, and Sharing.

Link to: Windows Network - Installing & Sharing.

How are the PCs, linksys, and your modem connected (what to what)?

Your linksys is like a hub, but better.

Are you trying to share the DSL, or a printer, move files between computers, or all of that?
