    I've had my trusty linksys wrt54g for 1 year now but i don't know how to share files on it. If this is helpful my desktop is connected to the router and my laptop is connected to the router using the wireless feature

    You cant share files 'on' a router, but you can share files 'through' it.

    Assuming that both PC and Laptop have Win XP installed, run the Network Setup Wizard and you should see the 'Shared Folders' on the PC in the 'Network Places' screen on the Laptop and vice-versa.
