Disable any firewalls on the machine like Windows firewall or any other firewall like Norton, McAfe, ZoneAlarm and something like that. Or if you have firewall policies or access rules, you must enable the sharing there.

How can I add a brother 145 printer so all laptops in the house can use it wireless


This model printer has only an USB printer connection and normally connected to a computer or laptop.
To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless network there are a couple of methods.
Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a shared printer. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LAN cable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printer on the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on at all times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.
OTHER METHOD
Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed on all the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from the USB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will be the IP address of the print server.

Set up a home office LAN which access internet through USB wireless gadget


The following networking job I have done in this Lab. It is enough for a small office to access or transfer file Printing and access of shared Internet in different type of operating system.

We have recently set up a home office (small laboratory) LAN. All the computers access the internet through a USB wireless (CMDA) dongle. The USB stick is Huawei EC168C and internet service provider is Reliance Infocom (India). But any USB internet dongle can be use to share internet in a LAN in the following way. And you don't need a router for that. In the areas where ISP cannot give wire line internet connection this type of USB wireless sticks are really helpful for home office.


Basic LAN Connection:

Here this lab has 4 PCs. One Windows XP, another Windows Vista starter and two RedHat Linux server systems. Here in this lab I have done the basic LAN connection using cat5 cable & RJ45 connector and an 8 port hub. I have connect the two windows based OS. Using cross cable I have connected two windows system with the hub. Then I put static IP address in Ipv4 of TCP/IP. After that I set workgroup name to join in a workgroup in windows PCs. Then I tried to ping the systems, and it was pinging. Then I have setup a home or small office network in both windows system. That I have enabled the Printer sharing. After that I can share file, data and printer through the system gateway.

Now I have to connect other two Linux PCs in this network. With same cross cable I have joined the both Linux system with the hub. Then to detect the Ethernet device I have put down "DEVICE=eth0" entry in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. Then I set IP address in Ethernet device in network configuration in graphical mode (or System-config-network in text mode).After doing this job I restart the network service with "service network restart" command. Then I am trying to ping the systems to one another, And It was pinging.

Now Linux system can access with each other and files also shared through SSH, Telnet,FTP using process and command.

Linux Configuration:

I have configured the Linux system in the following way. First I have set the host name in /etc/sysconfig/network file by VI editor. Next I have edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file with "Device=eth0" to detect the Ethernet device. After that I have put the IP add in network configuration file and Restart the network service. To keep the eth0 on permanently I also use the chkconfig command.

After doing this job File sharing can be possible through network file sharing (Nfs). I have install Nfs package & shared the nfs dir by editing exports file. Then I am trying to automount the NFS dir by automounting process. So that I put automounting entry of nfs file in fstab file. After that it's automounted in other system's mount location.

Windows & Linux Networking:

Through basic LAN both OS can only ping each other. To share file or data samba server (a client server in Linux) must be configured in Linux system. So I Install smb rpm package from yum repository. Then I have Configure the samba/smb.conf file. I put the Workgroup name on Workgroup column of samba/smb.conf file. Then I Set the network IP without host to route in network in Host allow column. At last I put down all details of Samba dir, users at the end of the configuration file set the samba password. After that I restart the samba demon to up the samba server. Now files can shared through samba server. In windows I Set the workgroup name pairs with samba server and also set username and password same as samba server. Now I trying to send or access file through samba in both OS and it happened.

USB Net Connect:

Here in this lab workers are use internet from an Usb net connect. So it must be shared in Network. It is too fast so shared internet can be access easily. In Windows XP system I connect the USB netconnect & share it in network. IF all the network setting is ok then all the systems can access shared internet through gateway. Here all users use this shared internet now.

Access of Another System:
VNC Server & Viewer is software through which we can access of another system easily. I just install the software & set the password. Then I run the vnc server. After that I Put the IP add of vncserver from vncviewer of another system and type the password & start access the vnc server system. It can be access form WAN also. I just Run the Vnc server and connect the internet and I got a Wan IP add provided by ISP.

How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
  1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
  2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
  3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
  4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
  5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
  6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
  7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
  8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
  9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
  10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
  11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
  12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
  13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
  14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
  15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
  16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
  17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
  18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
  19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

Msi notebook wirelss is not working


I suggest you treat your problem as two separate issues. The first is configuring a Local Area Network (LAN) with file sharing. The second is configuring the wireless communication links.

If possible, set up a "wired" LAN that performs as desired before trying to integrate the wireless links into your LAN. Hopefully you could do this with the desktop computer, one or both of the notebooks, and the wireless router. Does the wireless router have four hard wired LAN ports that function as a switch?

While they don't address the wireless component of your problem, The following Microsoft documents (downloads) are excellent resources for understanding and troubleshooting Windows XP file and printer sharing:
File and Printer Sharing with Microsoft Windows
Troubleshooting File and Printer Sharing in Microsoft Windows XP

There's quite a bit of redundant information, so you may want to start with the second document.

Basically, I'm not a fan of "wizards". When they work, you're very happy. When they don't work, you're very unhappy (and don't have a clue how to proceed). Setup the file sharing manually. The documents above essentially provide a tutorial to do that.

When you cannot see all of the server computers on the network in My Network Places or Network Neighborhood, the solution depends on whether you have successful network connectivity.

To check whether you have basic network connectivity from the browse client to the missing server computer, do the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In Open, type \\ComputerName (in which ComputerName is the name of the missing server computer), and then press ENTER.

If you get a window that displays the shared resources of the missing server computer, then you have basic network connectivity to the missing server computer. If you get an error message stating that the network path was not found, then there is a problem with basic network connectivity to the missing server computer.

If you have successful network connectivity to the missing server computer but you do not see it in the workgroup window, then it could be due to one of the following:

o The missing computers are configured with different workgroup name
o The browse servers do not yet have all the computers in their browse lists
o The missing computers are not on the same physical network segment

Good luck!

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc


Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.


How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.
  5. Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet. For example, if you connect to the Internet by using a modem, right-click the connection that you want under Dial-up.
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
  9. If you are sharing a dial-up Internet connection, select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box if you want to permit your computer to automatically connect to the Internet.
  10. Click OK. You receive the following message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP
    address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on
    your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, it is a good idea to set them
    to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet
    Connection Sharing?
  11. Click Yes.
The connection to the Internet is shared to other computers on the local area network (LAN). The network adapter that is connected to the LAN is configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

let me know if it helps.

unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.
