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.

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.

Connecting WUSB100 to Wireless G WRT54G


laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.

The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.

Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.
