Re: Help me figure out this network thing
You have a Wired/Wireless 4 port router? If so..
You can get internet to the wired computer, and your laptop with the wireless.
Now you want to share files as well.. Not a problem. All you will have to do is enable file/folder sharing, and put both computers on the same workgroup.
Assuming you have Windows XP.
Go to your control panel. Double click on "Network Setup Wizard"
It will ask you a series of question. When you get to the workgroup name, enter one.. Run the same wizard on the laptop. Enter the same workgroup name..
