wireless file sharing with netbios

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Mark Klebanoff, Apr 15, 2006.

  1. I've been posting here for a while about how I can't get filesharing
    to work on my wireless computer using NETBIOS. The computer is a Dell
    Inspiron 5150 running XP with the 1300 internal wireless card, and the
    other computers (wired) use XP Pro and OS/2. The wireless router is a
    WRT54g.

    After much trial and error I back-leveled the wireless card's driver
    to one I found on the internet-- the generic Broadcom 3.100.46.0
    version. The file is bcmwl5.sys. Now wireless file sharing works
    perfectly. I haven't experimented with releases newer than that one
    but older than the current one, so I don't know when NETBIOS was
    broken.

    Is anyone else aware of this issue-- was the change to the driver
    deliberate (since Micro$oft no longer supports netbeui) or was it an
    accident?
