In order to resolve this concern just disable or configure your firewall and anti virus to allow the file sharing between those 2 computers and after that ping each computer if its replying but still cannot see the shared documents, do a power cycle turn off everything for 30 seconds and power them back after 30 seconds and that should make everything work....

The setup disc for the router only needs to be run once when setting up the router to work with your internet provider and modem/router. You can try putting the disc in your desktop computer and reconfiguring the router.

Trying to connect to my laptop with windows 7. i have a Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

Linksys WRT54G can't connect 3rd wireless computer


log into the WRT54G wireless router and ensure that you do not have it set up for only handing out 4 IP addresses also check the laptop to see if it is set to have a DHCP or static IP address, if it has a static IP and your network is dynamic then this is why it wont connect.

if this resolves your issue and you are happy with the answer please grade me accordingly.

thanks

I have connected my desktop computer through ethernet with Lynksys wireless router G WRT54G. All other laptop computer works fine with wirless connection. They remain connected but my desktop computer...


If the wired connection keeps getting kicked there is a problem with a network setting on that computer seeing as the others are fine.

when you say ms utilities I presume "network seutup wizard"

If so the maybe you should copy the setting from one of your working machines by running the network wizard on that but not making any changes. when you get to the end it should offer to save the setting to a usb or floppy or even display them so you can write them down.

I would put them on a usb stick and plug that into your faulty machine and run the program that is on the usb stick which will then set you faulty machine up the same as the working ones.

Server connection WRT54G


This sounds like your work laptop is configured to configure the connection manually. Do you use your wireless at work? If you do not use your wireless at work, then you need to open your network properties (WINDOWS XP, click start button, then right click on "network places" and select properties, then right-click on your wireless card and select properties). in the middle box, double-click on the TCP/IP properties, and in the box that opens, select the button to "configure my network automatically". Do the same for the button at the bottom (DNS). This should fix the issue. If you do use your wireless at work, then you will need to remember (put into notepad and save to desktop) the settings that are in there already, and then set the same.

Hope this helps. If not, then I can get more in depth with you.
