Setting up a home network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QmFycnk=?=, Feb 2, 2007.

  1. I am having trouble setting up a wireless home network. I have set up my
    Linksys router just fine, and able to get wireless internet from my laptop
    with Linksys wireless PCMCIA card just fine. But I cannot access file and
    printer sharing wirelessly. I set it up on the host PC, but do not see it
    when setting up laptop in Network Setup Wizard. All I see is disconnected
    LAN port. Should I make my wireless connection the primary connection on my
    laptop so that it shows up in the Network Wizard?

  2. Hi
    If both computers can surf the Internet than it is Not a Wireless issue.
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what is allowed
    to be shared.
