Hello,

My desktop and my brothers laptop are both connected wireless to the internet through the same router.

Is it possible to connect my pc to my brothers locally (so without uploading & downloading from the internet, just sending over local network through the router to eachother?)

Some things I'm thinking of:
- Sending a file from my brothers pc to my pc, so I can print it
- Streaming a song/playlist to my brothers pc so he can listen to it
- Letting me explorer files on my brothers laptop that are mine (and vice versa)

If this is possible, and you could explain it to me, then I would love you forever!

Thanks in advance!

Some more details:
My desktop is running Windows XP Home
My brothers laptop is running Windows XP Pro
My router model is Philips CPWBS154/18
