Sucessfully connected wifi adaptor of laptop to internet which is getting an dynamic IP my DHCP of wifi router .
but still both of these desktop and laptop can't ping each other
Pretty sure that they both need to be part of the same workgroup. You also need to enable file sharing on the windows box and if you want a shared folder on the linux box you'll need to create a share in /etc/samba/smb.conf. Also, any time you make a change to samba you need to restart samba.Glenn
