Cannot share printer or files but have wireless internet

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?dG9tYnJhaWRlcg==?=, Jul 5, 2005.

  1. I have a belkin wireless G router 802.11g which is connected to my desktop
    (the host computer) my laptop is fitted with an intergrated WLAN 802.11. My
    laptop shows an excellent signal from the router and I can access the
    internet from both computers. The problem is that although I have completed
    the NETWORK SETUP WIZARD on both computers and have SHARING enabled on my
    printer and files I cannot view the files or find the priter on my laptop.
    When I ADD printer on the laptop it searches and finds my network but does
    not list the printer name.
    Do I need a WIRELESS DESKTOP NETWORK CARD fitting to my desktop computer or
    am I missing something else? Please help!

  2. i have a similar problem over here, i have a laptop that uses a wireless
    connection with a Linksys wrt54gs router, and i can connect to the internet
    without any problem. my problem occurs when i try to connect (filesharing and
    printersharing) with the other computers that have a wired connection with
    the same router. I also executed the required steps in the Network wizard
    setup on all the computers, but nothing seems to work. Is this because i am
    trying to combine both wireless and wired connections for networking or is
    there another solution to this issue?

    Thank you very much in advance

    No, to both of you, because I have a wireless adapter in my laptop and a
    onboard nic in my desktop. I had the same problem, could only share the
    internet. What I did was turn off my firewalls (zonealarm), ping both pcs
    back and forth. pinged by name and ip address. Magic!!~ Once I was able to
    print, everything else fell into place. In my case it was the firewall and
    much browsing, pinging, etc. Computer browser service was on and started,
    that's another. wish I could say more, but that is what I did to get the
    sharing and printing working.
    good luck
