Try this solution.

Open Dolphin and switch the path line from Navigate to Edit (use right button).

Then go to the path smb://Jocelyn@inspiron537

I hope you will be able to access to your desktop computer shared resources.

BRAVO now with your usefull help I see for first time on Linux my desktop.

It's long to establish the connection with the repertory that I want to access.

Can I add a shortcut to access my repertory "smb://Jocelyn@inspiron537/Donnée I357/Données/" ?

Thank you very much for your help.

Since more than 5 minutes I'm waiting Dolphin.

Great. This was a little success.

You are able to connect now but some problems are not solved. 5 minutes is too long time and maybe the transfer speed of files will be too slow too. I see very long round trip delays associated to Wifi.

I recommend this test. Connect both computers using Ethernet for tests. You should disable wifi on laptop. Check if delays and speed are fine with a wired connection.

In relation with shortcut, open Dolphin and click on right button of mouse in Places (Emplacements) area. Select Add Entry and fill Label and Location. Type "smb://Jocelyn@inspiron537/Donnée I357/Données/" in box Location. Finally click on Ok. If you wish, you can use the private IP address also: "smb://Jocelyn@192.168.0.102/Donnée I357/Données/".

I can't use on my laptop a wired connection because the RJ-45 is broken.

With windows 7 the connection is fast from my laptop to my desktop. Then it seem that the wifi is not the problem for me.
