connecting computer with different network


hi ,
I have a desktop connected as follows

Desktop to output port of modem
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

I also have laptop which receives internet wirelessly from router which draws from same modem.
So laptop has configuration
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.3
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.1

I want to access my desktop hard disk from laptop .
Is there a way other than
(1)connecting both to router so they have 10.0.0.2&3
(2)connecting laptop to modem so router rendered unused & laptop ain't using wireless.

All I know is 10.something & 192.168.something fall in private IP address range .

Why do you have 2 subnets, and two default gateway addresses for the modem? Does it contain a router? Is is a DSL modem? Describe the connection between the desktop and the modem. Is it a PPOE connection? Some DSL ISPs assign private addresses, and everyone is behind their NAT router.

If you only have two hosts, and the modem incorporates a NAT router, the simplest solution will be to configure the laptop to be on the 10. network.
