Hi, I am having problems with my wireless network file and print sharing and connecting to my wideband ISP
Router Netgear MR815 v2 Wireless pcmcia adaptor Netgear MA521 NIC 3Com 3C905B-TX NIC PC WinXP Laptop Win98 SE
MY NEW CONFIGURATION:
PC hardwired to router Laptop wireless to router Router hardwired to wideband equipment PC and Laptop connecting to the internet throught the router
Before I had the Netgear wideband setup I had a Motorola BB160 wireless setup, I had file and printer sharing enabled, the PC and Laptop connecting
seperately to the internet through Dialup Networking (old configuration). Everything worked fine with no problems, except dialup networking performance
was poor and to be expected.
After seting up my new wirless configuration I can connect to the internet just fine, however I can't enable file and print sharing. I have tried several
suggestions I have found in this newsnet and others with no success. I have seen some comments that this may not be possible unless I use Internet
sharing though the PC with WinXp. I don't want to use internet connection sharing as this means my PC will have to be turned on in order for my laptop to
connect to the internet.
I want to have both my PC and Laptop connect to the internet throught my router and have file and print sharing enabled between my PC and Laptop. I am
starting to think I may have to have another router between my wirless router and my widband equipment.
Any help would be appreciated RSW
