Problem with wireless Network Router

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Phimi Pienaar, Jan 11, 2008.

  1. I have a Linksys Router connected on the my pc which uses Vista system, and
    other notebooks/ Laptops can see me, some uses Windowns XP and I can see
    them. The other PC can not see my PC, it uses Windows XP and Netgear wireless
    adapter (WG311T). The other thing is that we can print on the printer that is
    connected the same PC.

    I have called the netgear guys and they told me I must call the Cisco guy
    but they told me that the Router should see the wireless adpter's PC. Is
    there any thing I did wrong on my configuration? Or is the wireless adapter.

    Please Help

    matter of configure correctly File and printers Sharing on each computer.
