    Thank you for your help! I had no problem to connet to my cable internet for almost 3 months. My question is about I try to share two computers data through wireless homenet work I cannot set up in the xp computer. Because Hawking HWU54D Hi-Gain Wireless-G USB Network Adapter used their own software and not use microsoft to setup internet connection. So when I plug in the flash drive and always showed "depend on the wireless software run on this computer, the wireless network Wizard may not work. see article 871122 in microsoft.com". I try but never can set up. Thanks!

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.

CAN THE DELL AIO 948 PRINTER BE USED FOR SHARING


Yes, If it is connected to a computer on your home network, right click the printer, setup sharing. For example, if you have a laptop on the same home network, Add a network printer to the laptop and print wirelessly without a wireless printer.

I am installing Kodak ESP-C310 All In One Printer on my home computer. If I want to use this printer for more than one computer (I have 3), do I need to load it on all three? I am using a wireless setup.


For best results, yes. I'll assume you're using a Microsoft operating system. You'll have to "share" the printer from the computer it is connected to by setting the appropriate options in the printer settings. Then, on the other networked computers, you'll have to add a "network printer" and provide the drivers when prompted.

Note: There are other ways to do this as well. For instance, if you router has a usb port, it may be capable of sharing the printer for the network or if all your computers have wifi NICs, that printer supports simply browsing for it wirelessly and will install itself if you're running Windows Vista and up. XP will probably still ask for the driver.

Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem


Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

2wire Gateway IP address:
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

Wnr834b passphrase won't work


Hello jsnow4 & cooler34788,

For vista OS;
Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Go to "Control Panel" ( switch it to classic view )
2. Click " Network & Sharing Center"
3. At the left side of " Network & Sharing Center", click Manage Wireless Connection ( under task)
4. Delete the profiles of your Wireless connections particulary the one you named for your Netgear wireless ( this is also known as SSID).
5. Click close including "network & Sharing Center"

Connecting to a Wireless Network on Windows Vista:

a. Click Start then select Connect To.
b. Connect to a network window will show up.
c. Select your wireless network's name or SSID and click Connect.
Since this is an unsecured wireless, Vista will warn you if you wanna connect anyways. Go ahead and connect.

From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.

Just purchased laptop with windows vista home premium


If your PC has a wireless card, you can setup an AD-HOC network :

If your PC is XP: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/adhoc.mspx

If your PC is Vista: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/help/293c504f-b944-4d5d-835c-f080129bd5dc1033.mspx

If your PC only has a wired Ethernet connection, you may still connect the two using a Wireless Access Point/Router.

Once you have the two computers connected, you may do whatever networked operations you would like:

File & Printer Sharing is the most common:

Vista: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/File-Print-Sharing-Windows-Vista.html

Setting up a new computer on a wireless network


hello Danj29,

I suggest you make sure that your Vista is configured to connect to a private network. To do this follow these steps:

1. Click Start, right-click Network, click Properties.
-The Network Sharing Center window displays the network type in parenthesis after the network name.

2. To the right of the network name and type click Customize.
3. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
4. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close

By changing your network location type to private, network discovery is automatically enabled in the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window. The following additional file and printer sharing options must be manually enabled:
  • File sharing
  • Public folder sharing
  • Printer sharing
  • Password protected sharing
When all of these sharing and discovery options are enabled, your computer can:
  • Locate other computers and devices on your home network and have other computers locate your computer
  • Share its folders
  • Share its Public folder
  • Share its printers
  • Require user names and passwords for other computers that connect to the shared folders and printers of this computer
To enable file sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to File sharing.
  2. Within the File sharing settings, click Turn on file sharing, and then click Apply.
To enable public folder sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Public folder sharing.
  2. Within the Public folder sharing settings, click one of the following:
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
  3. Click Apply.
To enable printer sharing and share all of your connected printers, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Printer sharing.
  2. Within the Printer sharing settings, click Turn on printer sharing, and then click Apply.
[Optional] To enable password protected sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Password protected sharing.
  2. Within the Password protected sharing settings, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply.
Hope you find this helpful info and thanks for using the FixYa service
Kind regards

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
