If you have a local area network inside. All you need to share files. Find the other side of the IP can be. For example: / / 192.168.0.1 so to be able to jump out of a password. On the note in order to succeed.

Limited Connectivity


connection is to the router not the desktop pc
Ignore the desktop pc
check the wireless security settings in the unnamed router and make certain that the non-connecting laptop has the same settings.

Okay so if I understand your question....your desktop has DSL and you want to connect your laptop to the same DSL connection? If that is the case then what you need is a router. A router will share the DSL connection between the desktop and the laptop. A wireless router will allow your laptop to surf wirelessly if it has a wireless adapter or you can plug it into the ethernet port on the laptop. You can purchase one here. The instructions are pretty simple and straightforward and should be included with the router.

File Sharing with Home Network...only one pc talking


The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless.
To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks.
Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.

Please post some feedback

Xbox live on this laptop


I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable.
put the my network places on your desktop.
right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic
then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties
right click on wireless and bridge devices
they are now sharing the same ip
be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely.
that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
