Workgroup computers on Internet connection and not LAN?!?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by William Johnston, Jul 24, 2007.

  1. Hello.

    My Workgroup computers share folders via a Wireless Internet Connection and not through my LAN.

    How do I configure my LAN network to use the Workgroup computers?

    My Internet connection is not reliable.

    Thanks,
    William Johnston

  2. Hi
    Wireless is only a replacement for wire and once it is set to work it is LA.
    All other LAN configuration are the same for wire or wireless.
    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.
