    I bought an Etech wireless router and wanted to link up my Laptop to my
    broadband connection linked up to my PC.
    I got precious little documentation but somehow stumbled through. The Laptop
    is connected to the internet (very impressive too!) however I haven't a clue
    how to set up the network for file sharing. I think things might be
    complicated by the fact that the PC is running Win98SE and the Laptop is XP.
    I checked the IP address of both computers and they were the same. I can get
    access to all the various setting screens via the PC but simply dont know
    what to tweak or configure. Any simple ideas?

    Sharing / Home networking
    The address should not be the same.
