    I bought an Etech wireless router and wanted to link up my Laptop to my
    broadband connection linked up to my PC.
    I got precious little documentation but somehow stumbled through. The Laptop
    is connected to the internet (very impressive too!) however I haven't a clue
    how to set up the network for file sharing. I think things might be
    complicated by the fact that the PC is running Win98SE and the Laptop is XP.
    I checked the IP address of both computers and they were the same. I can get
    access to all the various setting screens via the PC but simply dont know
    what to tweak or configure. Any simple ideas?

    The address should not be the same.
