Adding a new computer to a wireless network

    I have a wireless home network with two laptops and a router. I'd like to
    add a third laptop and I know that the procedure is to run the "Network
    setup Wizard" on it. A few questions though :
    - do I have to rerun the wizard on the other laptops, afterwards ?
    - the last step of the wizard asks if I want to run it on other
    computers. Shall I click on "finish" first or run the wizard on the other
    laptops and THEN click "finish" ?
    - why is that I can see the shared folders of the second laptop but it is
    not listed when I click on "view workgroup computers" ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

  2. Hi
    No you do not have to touch the other computers.
    You can easily configure the Wireless manually.
