Hi Shueb,

First off, I assume if your running a network, you'd have a server based product running. If so, I would have the server manage the printer as a shared printer. This can be accomplished by setting up the share either in your management console or your active directory. Then the server will administer the rights to the printer. If your running a network with just workgroups, then you will have to right click the printer and go to share and security. From there go to permissions and make sure that the users on those machines have permission to access it.

A real easy way to connect a shared printer on a network is to browse through the entire network icon, and click on the machine that is sharing that printer, and when you see the printer right click it, and go to connect printer, and that's it. As long as you've got all the drivers for all the different OS's on the differnent machine, it will install the driver and give you access.

Good Luck,
Mark

No internet connection


For you to have internet access on your desktop, must be connected to a Local Area Network (LAN) that has internet access or use a USB dongle.

If you have problems with your LAN on USB Dongle contact your Network Administrator or service Provider.

Where is the wireless switch on the dell vostro 200


Unlike notebook computers, most desktops don't come with wireless networking built in. I can't find any mention on Dell's site that the Vostro 200 has wireless capability, so this computer doesn't have a wireless switch. To use your desktop computer on a wireless network, you'll need to install a wireless adapter. USB adapters are very easy to use since you just have to plug them in. They're not expensive and you can easily find them at retail stores and online.

2 NICs connecting to 2 different networks


you need to speak to your network administrator, for printers you get network enabled printers ( your network admin will assign an IP address and sharenames for your printers,

your network admin can create shared volumes on the network and can sort out internet routing that complies with the corporate domain.

sorry no easy way to do this

What are the step for setting up you computers to a network using a Linksys router. I have a 2 PC's and a laptop that I would linke to net work together. My first computer is connect to the Wireless-B...


Hi Ed, if your using windows you can open network connections & run network setup wizard. Follow the instruction for a home network for the wireless PC's & notebooks. Once the network is setup for all PC's than you can install the printer cd software in the PC's that you want to access the printer. Each PC & notebook will have access to the printer through the network.
The PC that that is connected to the printer needs to be shared.
Open printers and Faxes. Right click once on the printer & left click sharing. Agai follow the instructions.
Lastly,I strongly suggest you setup security for your wireless. If you do not anyone close can tap into your network connection. Follow linksys instruction to setup security. If you run into a problem you can call linksys for free advise from a pro. Their number is listed in the manual.
