Wireless Cable Router

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Mervyn Thomas, Jul 27, 2007.

  1. I have a Dynamode Broadband router connected to an XP PC by ethernet and
    Vista connected by Wi-Fi to a laptop.
    The broadband sharing works fine but I have just spent all day trying to get
    the PC to talk to the Laptop and vice versa for printer and file sharing and
    just cannot get anything working. The documentation I have got is abysmal!.
    Can anyone give me a lead as to what I should do in what order?

  2. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network
    settings,http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
    Vista File and Printer Sharing-
