help - home network & printer sharing

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?THVjaG8=?=, Oct 29, 2006.

  1. I currently have a PC and a laptop and both are connected to the internet via
    a bt voyager wireless router/modem.

    My PC is connected to the router via a cable and my laptop is connected to
    the router via a wireless adapter. Both can connect to the internet
    independently and both can be connected to the internet at the same time.

    The problem that i am having is that i cannot share any files or folders
    between my laptop and my PC and i am not able to print from my laptop that is
    connected to my PC. I am very new to this networking thing and i am stumped
    as to how to fix this.

    Any help gratefully appreciated!!

    Lucho,

    Have you tried running the Wireless Network Set up wizard in control Panel?

  3. 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 is allowed
    to be shared. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;304040
