First of all I thanks a lot in advance everyone who will try to help me to solve this matter.. I apologize for my english that is not so good.. I'm Italian.
I also apologize if this topic have probably been asked a couple of times but, as we say in my language, I 'm " ignorante come una capra ", that means that my knownledge of wireless and networks is really poor....
So, I have a FLAT ADSL connection. I got a desktop PC and a notebook and I'd like to set a network between these 2 computers and use the same internet connection for both.
I bought this system:
- D-Link DSL-300T adsl modem
- D-Link DI-604 broadband router
- D-Link DWL-900AP+ 2.4Ghz wireless access point.
Notebook works wireless and desktop PC is cable connected to the router.
With default settings for all these devices the internet connection works properly on both computers but I am not able to set a network between them although I tried a couple of times to set it with wizard wireless configuration of windows XP pro. I don't know why I can't add devices to the existing network in network resources. Even if I search it, i don't find them.
The only way to access to devices options is to go to their respective IP adress through web browser. The strange thing is that when I try to access the devices by the desktop PC is all right and I find all 3 devices inside the network (but not the notebook) and when I try to access them by the notebook, I can find only the wireless access point and not the other 2. When I try to do this and I don't find them into the network, the internet connection is no more available, the devices disappears by the desktop pc too and I need to restart them to let it work again.
Please note that all devices are set to "DHCP" mode. Do you think that this could be a problem?? Please help me, I really don't know any more who can I ask to help solving this big trouble!!!
