Ok, So I just bought a linksys wireless card for a guy, and it works great at school. He brings it home (I'm at his house right now) and the card wont detect the Netgear router he has. yes, it is wireless.. What's the problem? I'm currently changing both of their workgroups and all that good stuff to put them on the same network.. Is that all?
I Also have a Linksys Wireless Access Point. With no success connecting the Netgear router to the linksys card, I have hooked that up to the Netgear router with a straight through cable. It looks like it's starting to work.
Success. It looks like a netgear router cannot talk to a Linksys card.
Ok, now he wants a network to share the printers. One's on vista though, will it work?
I have them both in the same workgroup, At some houses it was as easy as that. How do I do it on these? Seems like it's not working. And the "Set up a network" is not working either.
Alright, I lied. On the vista desktop I had to click make a network through the access point. Now it says "Configure the device manually"
I need the SSID (network name) and the security type, or passphrase. What is this?
