Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router
I was told I could use my wifi router as a hub to allow my laptop to see my pc but this isn't working. My pc is hooked up to my sbc router and wifi, and is working perfectly. My laptop has wifi and again works perfectly. I was told I could log onto my pc using the \192.168.0.2 (as in my case). I get the error that it cannot be found. Thanks for any help!

A few questions before attempting an answer please confirm or explain if your network and computer systems do or do not match the following (please indicate that you do not know to any items where it is appropriate and I will try to provide instructions to determine the answer) You are the eyes and hands of this team and all I know about your systems is what you report here. A successful resolution of this issue will require both of us.
If both your PC and your laptop work with the internet indicate they do in your response and skip down to the question about the static IP assignment to your PC of the 192.168.0.2 address and continue from there.
First in terms of wiring starting at a phone jack
Does the phone jack (where you would plug in a phone) connect to the SBC Modem (possibly through a splitter)?
Does the SBC Modem connect with an ethernet cable to the
via the WAN port or
one of the (probably) 4 LAN ports?
Is your PC connected to one of the Lan ports or is it wireless? from your message it appears to be wireless.
Your laptop appears to be connected wirelessly does it work
with the internet?
When you configured the IP address of your desktop PC did you enter a static IP Address for the either the wireless adapter or the wired connection of 192.168.0.2? Please indicate which adapter you configured with this address if you did so.
(please answer separately all of the below for each computer
your PC and your laptop)
Are your PC and Laptop a windows computers?
Which version Windows XP?
If Windows XP
Do you know if you are using windows firewall?
If so did you set the firewall to allow file and printer sharing?
Do you run an internet security program or firewall program on your computer?
What is it's name
Do you know if it has a firewall?
IF you know it has a firewall
was it enabled to allow File and Printer Sharing?
When sharing files like this security of the wireless connection becomes more critical. Do you want to discuss securing your wireless connection?
I know this was a lot of questions but there can be numerous reasons for the problem you described and these answers will eliminate some issues and highlight others for review.
