Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I have a Dell laptop with WiFi, Windows Vista Home Premium connected to a Lynksys WiFi router with several desktop computers connected via ethernet (cat5) to the router. Is there a way to share folders/files between the laptop, and one of the desktops which runs with WindowsXP and all service packs installed?
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:
On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.
I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com
