Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
Here’s a very short summary of how to create a home network:
1) Create a named Workgroup (computer network name).
In Windows, the defaults are MSHOME or WORKGROUP, but you can choose your own
2) Add computers to the named Workgroup
3) Enable file and/or printer sharing.
Here are some resources to help you:
1. Windows XP has a wizard to walk you through it - see tutorial here
2. For Vista, try this link for a detailed overview: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727037.aspx
These links might help too:
3. When it comes to sharing folders, there are two main ways to do this. You can either 1) right click the folder and enable sharing through the shortcut menu., or 2) add the file/folder to ‘Shared Documents’ (for XP) or ‘Public Folder’ (for Vista).
Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if you have any difficulties. Good luck!
