trouble setting up home network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Tm92aWNlIG5ldHdvcmtlcg==?=, Jun 10, 2005.

  1. I have a laptop with Windows XP pro, and a desktop with Windows 98. I am
    currently sharing an internet connection. The Linksys wireless router is
    connected to the cable and the desktop. No problem there. However, when I
    try to set up a home network for file and printer sharing, I get:
    The network connections listed below are disconnected. Plug in your network
    cables or otherwise connect your network hardware and click next.
    I've never set up a network before. Any ideas?

    Often print and file sharing problems are personal firewall issues.
