Re: have belkin n router, want to network laptops to...
Connect the laptops to the WAN - set up a shared folder or map a drive so that each laptop can see it. The wizard for the router will help you set the router up - and use Windows explorer to setup the shared/map drives.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

1. Locate the wireless-network-connections option on your computer or wireless device. 2. Select your Belkin Router from the list of available networks. You can identify your Belkin Router by locating the network name (SSID) from the card located underneath the foot of your Router. 3. Enter your network password (located on your network information card).
Check the main computer you set up the network router with...you may need to go to the network status and tasks in control panel...click on this...then you will see a map of all the network devices connected...find the belkin router and click on it...in this window there should be a tab called wireless properties..click this...the wireless properties first page should have the wireless SSID name listed here...and if you click the security tab then the security type and network key are displayed here..You need to write down the SSID, security type, and network key and make sdure the toshiba laptop setting for the wireless network are exactly the same. There may be a link on the first page of the wireless securities saying copy to usb drive..you can use this to copy all network settings to and then transfer these settings in to the toshiba by using the network setup wizard.

second,OFF all windows firewall..
now,open your windows explorer to view other computers...
jaz type in the address bar \\<computer name of ip address> of other computer you want to view
You don't need software for the router. Is your wireless encrypted or open? Just view avaiable networks with your xp machine and choose your network to connect to. If you do have an encrypted signal use the vista machine and type in the ip address to the router in your browser window. I think belkins router ip is 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.1 Hope this helps, let me know
The first thing to check is that both of your computers are assigned to the same workgroup name. Right click 'my computer' and select properties. Change the workgroup name so that they are identical on both machines. You will need to reboot if you change the name one one or both of the machines.

Check in your routers settings via your browser that the file transfer speed is no higher than 54 mbps, as it may be set at 108 mbps or 125 mbps as a 'g' type router should be, but your wireless network adapters can only work at 54 mbps and are crashing the transfers.
