Hi, First let me say it could be several things so you need to be patient with the answers, since we don't have all of your info. Sounds like the file sharing is not enabled on the wireless one but if you want to share between them check them both. A word of caution before proceeding is file sharing between computers connected to a router may allow the files to be viewed by others. OK assuming you have xp or vista, in the control panel under network settings you will have file sharing on the menu in vista and xp will have lan, local or wireless settings pick the one you are using and right click properties, and make sure that the box is checked for file and printer sharing for microsoft networks. You didn't say what type of wireless you are using but the same settings apply to your router, you have to enable file sharing over wireless make sure you encrypt it or you will be at risk. Good Luck!

What version of windows are you running? Also, are you saying that if they are both on a wired connection that you can access each?

If that is the case then I would suggest to you that the problem is in the one with the wireless connection specifically in the wireless software that you are using. In most wireless configurations it will let you select whether the network you are connected to is Home, Work, or Public. If the connection is selected as Public it will deny sharing. You can either delete the auto connection for the wireless connection and then readd it using a friendlier configuration or you can try to modify the connection through the use of the software. I would recommend deleting the account and using the wizard first.

Hope this helps.

How do I connect tablet to my computer?


Unless your tablet and PC have bluetooth and can pair up together, this can sometimes be an issue. Folks think that since their tablet is wireless and connects to their home network, they should be able to access it from other PCs/devices on the network. Unfortunately, although tablets are computing devices, they are not computers in the same definition as PCs are. They do not have domains, workgroups, or homegroups inherit to their OS. Thus, PCs on the network don't see them. If you have a USB cable to connect the tablet to the PC, then you may see the device as an added one since the PC's OS can assign the device a drive letter. Most folks want this connectivity to transfer photos and videos from one device to another. If you cannot physically connect the two units via cable, you might try to find an app that will allow you to get the devices talking to each other. There are FTP apps that will get the two together for file transfers and the like.

How many pc's, laptop's & printer's can i link up to belkin n1 vision wireless router model f5d8232-4


You can uplink a fairly good number of PCs or laptops with Belkin N1 as it supports high bandwidth. Keep in mind that upon adding every new PC, the overall bandwidth for the other PCs is reduced. If the PCs/ laptops do not require much bandwidth, you can connect / add more PCs to the network.
Generally, I have uplinked upto 10-15 clients to one router and the network worked just fine. It all depends upon the network environment and the bandwidth usage by each client PC. If the PCs are using just email and simple internet browsing (and remain idle for most of the time), you can add more clients to your network as not all the systems consume network resources at the same time.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I can not get by daughters compute to hook up to my netgear wireless router. My other computers had no problem in getting connected. We have tried everything and can not get it to take the router


Hello
Have you tried going to control panel,network and sharing center.

Once there, make sure all pcs are on the same network,either homgroup or public.

Your daughters needs to be on the same network as the others.Also be sure the firewall is not blocking any connections.

You may also want to reboot the router do this by...
1 shut down all pcs
2 Unplug all cables from router including power.
3 Let router set for a min then plug all cables back in and power up
4 Once you get stedy lights on router restart pcs.

Hello, I got a Dell Inspiron mini 10 for christmas. and i can be on my home wireless network. then it will suddenly drop signal and i wont be on the internet any more. what's wrong with it?


hi Power off your router and wait about 45 seconds then plug in the power to the router again, restart your dell mini and see if the connect gets more stable. do you have any other wireless pc's in the house? if so do they work fine? if you dont have any other wireless pc's try to get a friend to come over with a laptop and see how their connection is to your network... that will definitely isolate if you have a router issue or a PC issue. keep in mind if you have other pcs in the house and they are hardwired into the router, they will not exhibit the connection loss that wireless pcs connected to the router will experience.


hope this helps!

Networking 2 computers


Yes you can make a simple Network between 2 PCs ....but ....you need what is called a "crossover ethernet cable" or "xover". A standard RJ45 ethernet cable WILL NOT work.

You also need to make sure both Pcs are in the same Workgroup and have unique computer names.... as is standard in Networking.
