Shared ADSL fine but network blind?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Steve Campbell, Oct 9, 2004.

  1. Sorry if this is asking the obvious but I'm a networking
    newbie I'm afraid.

    I've just got a 2Mb ADSL connection and have set up a
    Kcorp KLG-575 (108+G) wireless router and a D-Link 300T
    modem serving:

    XP (HE) SP2 desktop - ethernet connection to the router
    XP (HE) SP2 laptop - wireless 108+ connection

    1/. Both computers access the ADSL connection just fine
    but how on earth do I get them to be able to see each
    other so I can access each other's files? I set up the
    router on its web based interface and am currently running
    it on 64 bit WEP.

    2/. I've set MAC filtering for just these 2 machines
    alone. Will this stop another outsider logging on
    wirelessly to the router?

    Many thanks.
