Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
I have a wired XP PC which i would like to have network to my wireless Vista laptop. The connection is as follows: a bridged bellsouth DSL Router connected to Linksys G wireless router to which the Desktop XP PC is wired. Linksys assisted me in setting up the router and the laptop has access to the internet even if the desktop is turned off. However I am unable to print and share files between the two computers and linksys refused to help any further. I purchased the router to network these systems but I feel I wasted my money because they still are not networked. Can anyone help. I ran Network wizard on the desktop but I cannot see the laptop from the Desktop nor vice versa. The laptop networking map shows laptop> router > internet. but no further I still cannot see the desktop. Please help
I have a linksys wireless router that i bought today i am trying to plug it up in my house i also have linksys dsl boxs and my fax machine plug into this same pc and i cant figure out what to unplug and what plugs go where and how to plug it up at all

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).
