files and settings transfer wizard

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?c2Jy?=, Feb 1, 2006.

  1. I have a wireless network of a desktop and notebook both of which operate
    under XP. I can connect to the internet and share files but I cannot
    transfer files. When I use the wizard on the old desktop computer it goes a
    few steps but then gives an error message that it cannot find the other
    computer. When I use the wizard on the new computer it requires a Windows XP
    CD that did not come with either computer. Thanks for any help.

  3. Jack,
    I can share files but I cannot transfer them. When you share a file
    all it does is create a pointer in the remote computer but not the file.
    Thanks for any help you can provide.
