How to get beyond a shared internet connection

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?bWFyYnk=?=, Jan 4, 2005.

  1. I have a number of computers and 2 Tivos sharing a broadband internet
    connection. One PC is connected by direct ethernet to my wireless access
    point and router. The other PC, laptop, powerbook and two tivos all connect
    wirelessly to the same device which is connected to my cable modem.

    Everything works ok but I can't figure out how to get the devices to see
    each other. I've tried running various networking wizards. My powerbook can
    see the windows computers sometimes but I've never been able to share files
    or printers. My main PC that is connected by Ethernet can't see anything but
    the router.

    Should I set up my network from scratch to try to get the workgroup part to
    work? Even my TIVO's, which can see each other on the Wireless network can't
    be seen by my PC. If I do set up a new network using a combination
    wired/wireless like I have now which wizards do I run in what order? Would
    it be simpler to have an all-wireless network?

    I would appreciate any guidance that is offered.
