Hi,

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:

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/connect-to-and-share-files-with-other-pcs-on-your-.html

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!

I have set up a password for my belkin wireless router and now when i connect it says limited access and the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network


Hi Andrew,

This should be an easy one to fix. First, unplug power from the modem and the router for 30 seconds. Power on the modem first and wait one minute. Now power on the router and wait one more minute. This will remedy the limited access issue.

Now we'll fix the 'settings don't match' issue. Here's what's probably happening:

You had connected to your wireless network with no password previously and windows saved a connection to this network. Now, you are trying to connect with security enabled and windows is saying "hey, I know this network, but my saved connection doesn't have any security"

So.....you need to delete the existing connection to your wireless network and then re-connect to it.

In windows 7, go to control panel and click on the network and sharing centre. now click on manage wireless networks and delete the connection to your home wireles network.

Now reconnect to your wireless network and you will be asked for the password. Enter it and everything should be good.

Please let me know if this helps. I f not, get back to me and I can help some more.

Regards,

Joe

Hi. I have just set up a Belkin Share wireless router, Connecting to internet fine, but can't get printer to work via usb. Green light above socket doesn't come on when I plug it in. Thanks in advance -...


Ian, you have to 1st of all connect that printer to the computer and check if its working fine or not. Check if you have installed the necessary drivers and software that came along with the printer. Once that gets to go, then, connect the printer to Share router and check if the light above the USB is lit up to check if the port on router is working. If that is lit, you have to be connected to the router (make sure that you aren't connected wireless as a guest). Guest access doesn't have the rights to have file and printer sharing! Install the router monitor software properly that would be on the disk which came along with router or download the latest version of software from: http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3714/p/5132
You also have a brief tutorial on how to configure a printer with this router on the Belkin Support website. Here is the link for that. http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3796/p/5132.

Thanks for asking.

when sharing internet connection, it's all about sequence when turning it on... Sequence in regard to what's turned on first, second etc... Here's the solution:
1. Turn everything off... modem, router...computers etc..
2. Turn on the wireless router FIRST and let it boot up.
3. Then turn on the modem and let it cycle up...
This allows your modem to lock onto the wifi router.
4. Turn everything else back on...
You should be good to go without drop outs...

If the power goes out, simply follow this sequence...
It's all about the sequence!!

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

Sounds like a faulty router or issue with the firmware if it is unaccesible, your best solution is to factory reset the device and try again.
