Check this one out - three computer network, two running XP SP2, one running Vista. All of a sudden, one XP machine couldn't access a shared folder on the other XP machine but - get this - the Vista machine could access the XP's shared folder no problem. After turning off the Windows firewall on the two XP machines without luck (oh, yeah, I did the enable NETBIOS under TCP/IP thing too), I went back to the XP machine I was trying to share from and reinspected it. On a whim I turned off the firewall included with the Symantec Norton Security and suddenly everything was fine. The other XP machine couldn't even ping the second (sharing) XP box by machine name earlier. I don't know if Norton got a wached out update or what, but I'm relieved everything is working now.

Turn on file and printer sharing for microsoft networks. Find it in network connections. Right click your connection, then select properties. You must also provide at least one file or folder to share before anything will be seen on the networked pc's.

I need to connect a D-Link router to my cable modem so that I can use my laptop anywhere in my home

Cable-modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN (or "Internet") port on the router

LAN port on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your laptop

Then, access the "built-in" web-server on the router,
and run the "Wireless Networking Setup" wizard:
* to set an SSID ("network-name")
* an encryption-level (Hint: choose 'wpa')
* a password for your wireless network

Then, disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer,
and then "wireless available wireless networks".
Select your newly-created network, and connect to it.

No wireless connection

Dont enter the Router IP as WWW., Instead just type and it should let you access the Router EWS Page. you are trying to access Internal network ( which we can call local network or LAN ) so do not use WWW.

In the Address bar of Internet Explorer, just type the IP Address.
