Sharing is not enough on windows server 2003. You will need to give privilages to the Everyone user on that folder and enable the Guest user from the Computer Management/Users and Groups panel.

You can also create a new user from there. Give it security and sharing privilages on that folder. And login with it from the other computer.

My Linksys (cisco) 2024 has been diconnecting computers attached to them. I have a SBS 2003 issuing dhcp. It seems if a computer is connected for 5+ hours it will disconnect. The only solution is to...

Check and make sure only one device is really dishing out DHCP. I know that can cause conflicts. Also on your DHCP server, check the lease time and in the settings make sure the time is allocated correctly. I am not much of a windows server guy, but I believe it would be in the active directory permissions for a certain organizational unit.

Configuring WRE54G to a wireless router

Before you start configuring the WRE54G you need to consider the following factors:

1. Make sure that there are no wireless security enabled on the router like WEP and wireless MAC filtering. If you have them enabled try to disable them first. Check if there is a wireless computer that is currently working on your network.
2. Make sure that the SSID broadcast is enabled.
3. Then Hit the Automatic Configuration button on the WRE54G for about 3-5 secs.

The wireless computer should be connected to the SSID of the Range expander.
The range expander doesn’t have any DHCP server. The IP address that will be assigned to the computer will be or the Auto-configuration IP
Assign a static IP address on the wireless card. IP address should be, Subnet Mask, Default gateway
To assign static IP address on your machine you follow the steps below:
Windows 9 xs and ME:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address:
Subnet Mask:
Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000
Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Network Connection that you are using > Properties > Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following IP address:
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Then click ok all the way out.
Try to ping the Range expander. Go to start and then run type CMD for Win XP/2000, COMMAND for Win ME and below. On the black screen that will pop-up type PING (Default IP address of the Range expander.
If the ping test was successful then you can access the setup page of the Range expander. If not, try to reset the Range expander for 10 seconds and then power cycle it.
To reset the range expander, follow the steps below:
Hold down the reset button for 10 seconds then unplug power while holding down reset...plug it back in after 5 seconds then wait for 10 more seconds before releasing the reset button.
To access the setup page of the expander, Open your Internet Explorer and please go to
If will prompt a username and password box, leave the username blank password is admin.
On the setup screen of the expander, you can set the same exact settings on your router. SSID, Channel, WEP settings should be the same on the router and you need to specify the WLAN MAC Address of your router to the space provided for the WLAN MAC address on the setup page of the Range Expander.
Once you applied the settings, the lights on the expander should be both blue.
You can now set your IP address back to obtain an IP automatically and Obtain DNS address automatically.
Range expander should be working after performing the troubleshooting steps above.

If you have an Ethernet port on the WRE54G, try to connect the range expander directly to your computer with static IP address then ping the WRE54G. Make sure that you are not running any firewall and Internet security in your computer. If you were able to ping the try to access it through the Internet Explorer and configure it from the there. Follow the steps that I gave to you to configure the wireless settings of the range expander.

Make sure that you have checked all the wireless security settings on your router. Make sure that you have those disabled. Try to set static IP address in your computer and try to ping the and see if you can get a reply.

To set static IP follow the steps below:

Windows 9x and ME:
Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network > Highlight the TCP/IP of the Wireless LAN card you’re using > Properties
>>>Under IP Address TAB:
Specify an IP address:
Subnet Mask:
>>>Click the GATEWAY TAB:
Under New Gateway: Enter then click on Add.
Then Hit Ok All the way out… hit yes if it’ll ask you to restart

Windows XP and 2000
Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click Local Area Network Connection that you are using > Properties > Internet Protocol TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following IP address:
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Then Hit Ok All the way out.

VPN misconfigured after belkin router was configured XP

Hi Grahmmy..
I am myself a (cisco certified network associate)CCNA, we have configured several VPNs on XP, please try these steps and im sure you'll be able to reconfigure the Virtual private network on your XP...
  1. First open the control panel by clicking start,open the Network Connections item in Control Panel. A list of existing dial-up and LAN connections will appear.
  2. Choose the 'Create a new connection' item from the left-hand side of the window. The Windows XP New Connection Wizard will appear on the screen.
  3. First click Next to begin the wizard, then choose the 'Connect to the network at my workplace' item from the list and click Next.
  4. On the Network Connection page of the wizard, choose the 'Virtual Private Network connection' option and click Next.
  5. Enter a name for the new VPN connection in the 'Company Name' field and click Next. The name chosen need not match the name of an actual business.
  6. Choose an option on the 'Public Network' screen and click Next. The default option, 'Automatically dial this initial connection' can be used if the VPN connection will always be initiated when the computer is not already connected to the Internet. Otherwise, choose the 'Do not dial the initial connection' option. This option requires that the public Internet connection be established first, before this new VPN connection will be initiated.
  7. Enter the name or IP address of the VPN remote access server to connect to, and click Next. Company network administrators will provide this information.
  8. Choose an option on the "Connection Availability" screen and click Next. The default option, 'My Use Only,' ensures that Windows will make this new connection available only to the currently logged on user. Otherwise, choose the 'Anyone's use' option.
  9. Click Finish to complete the wizard. The new VPN connection information has been saved. Good luck ;-)

My huband computer crashed and he uses it for work i've been trying to let him log on to my computer so he can get into his information but can't retrive can i set my computer up so that he can log...

Do you have a domain-based network? If so, user accounts are stored on a server, and he should be able to log in on any machine with his regular username and password. If not, his account exists solely on his computer, and your account exists solely on yours. You may create another account for him on your machine, but even if you give it the same name, it still may not have access to any of the data under his account on his computer, because it's actually a different account, even if it has the same name. If you know the administrator password on his computer, you can use that to access all of the data on the machine and/or reset his password. If not, can help you hack into his account (or the administrator account) and/or recover his files.

Can't access the internet. No problem with the static IP address and setting up the DWL G710. Searched and found 2 AP's for my wireless account. Selected one and saved. Got indication that DWL G710 was...

Is there any particular reason you're using a static IP? Most routers are set up already for DHCP.

If you need to use a static IP, make sure you have the right settings for the default gateway and DNS servers (you'll have to contact your ISP to find out the addresses for the DNS servers).

I would recommend switching to DHCP though, and you won't have to worry about such settings.

D-link 2100AP as Client for X-box

You need to disable the dhcp server on the access point. This will conflict with the bt router since it too has a dhcp server. Hope this helps
