Re: connecting PC to Imac

Hi kikimcd,
I need some info.
Like what are the IP addresses of the various devices: router, Mac, and PC. We need to know that they are all in the same network. If your router is acting as an DHCP Server and supplying IP addresses dynamically to your network, I would advise that you apply static IP address to the devices on your LAN. If you are unsure of this procedure, let me know and I will guide you through it.
After you have the IP address for each, try to ping the mac from the pc and the pc from the mac. It the pings are successful, the devices are capable of communicating and the only issue left is to get the mac and the pc to actually connect by configuring the sharing protocol.
First you will need to you will need to enable sharing in the MACs System Preferences by placing a checkmark in the box for "Windows Sharing", then click on the accounts button and enable the designated user account.
Second be sure that you have File and Print Sharing enabled in Vista. Then check to see that an icon for the MAC is showing in your Network Explorer. Then when prompted for USERNAME and PASSWORD in the WIndows Vista authentication dialog, enter the MacIPAddr\YourMacUsername (Mac password for that Mac user account).

Re: connecting PC to Imac

Funny this, We are doing the same thing! same wireless connect, but I am on a PC you can switch all of your files, but you would have to upload them or ask your mac seller if they could transfer it for you.

Need help before buying laptop with 64-bit operating system

The router protocols (on air and ethernet connection) are independant of the operating system. Vista 64 bit will work with the router.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop

When you look on the box that the router came in, you have to look to see what Operating Systems it is compatible with. In many cases, routers will not be compatible with vista. I have a Linksys WRT300N, and it works great with Vista.Hope this helps.
