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.

Hiro h50015 nic on windows 7 says network cable unplugged when cable is clearly plugged in

To connect to the internet, you must have a device like a modem or a router. Is your PC connected to this device? Do you have other PCs or networked devices on your LAN? Can you reach them with ping?

To make it easier to help, you should give information how your network looks! e.g.
internet ---- cisco800 router --- d-Link switch ---- myPC
or something like that. Otherwise it is fooling around in the dark.

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer

Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.

Wireless router blooking


You can block other users by enabling the MAC Filter and only accept connections from your PCs MAC numbers.  To determine the WiFi MAC numbers of your PC, click on Start, click on Run, type "ipconfig /all" on all your PCs. Look for the Wireless networking cards and their numbers which should be something like 00:A1:B2:C3:D4:E5. In the Web Configuration of the router, enable MAC Filter and enter those numbers in "Allow". Save and Exit. From thereon only the PCs with the MAC numbers entered would be allowed access to the Internet.

I personally find this preferable rather than WEP or WPA which causes slowdown in WiFi connections.

Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Network Cable Unplugged

This is odd as the connection icon with the cross on it refers to a wired connection and not wireless. Right click the icon then select dissable. Go to your wireless card in network connections and right click then connect. Also go into your routers properties and see if it is allocating your wireless card an IP address, this should show along side your other PC's allocated IP addreses.
