    I am running Windows 7 Pro and wish to set up a network as follows: Network to include: PC1 that stores all shared files and is connected to printer and scanner. PC2 that can access shared files, printer and scanner via PC1. PC1 & PC2 are hard wired to the router and hence to the internet. Network hard disc for backup hard wired to network via additional wireless router in separate building. Public, unsecured wireless internet access from additional building via same wireless router. What kind of network (home, work group domain) and how do I do it? Thanks

    Network hard drive is hard wired to wireless router (in additional building) which is, in turn, hard wired to the main network router. I need to understand whether I can use a homegroup with PC1 & PC2 and if that will allow me read/write access from PC1 to the network hard drive whilst access to that drive can be made secure from anyone using the unsecured wireless internet access that uses the same router. If a homegroup can't do it, can a work group or will it need to be a domain with PC1 as the administrator?

    Did you receive my follow up question submitted around 4pm GMT?

  • warden550 Feb 02, 2010

    I realise my question was a long one, but your answer does not address WHAT KIND OF NETWORK, HOME, WORKGROUP OR DOMAIN?

    Sorry, but as I am paying for the Premium service, I thought I would get, a) people who would READ the questions and b) people who would reply quickly. Please prove me wrong before quit using the service and cancel my payments. Please refer to what I have asked. I need to know the answers before next month!

    No. I would still appreciate a solution.

You have to configure password for WAP to access the network. For this go to router management and configure the WAP password.

Well, the network in the first building and second building is clear. However, it is not clear how you would allow the two buildings to communicate with each other. What would be the distance between the two buildings?

    Is the issue resolved?

    Please note that if you wish to connect two routers placed in diffrent building and access the resources through each other then need to have both the routers on the same subnet.



    The question that you have asked "WHAT KIND OF NETWORK, HOME, WORKGROUP OR DOMAIN? " is not at all required here. To allow both the network to communicate they both should be using same Network IP range.



    Please provide me the model make of the routers used and the IP address range of these routers?

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

  • If you have moire than 10 computers then it is better to create 1 domain for it.
    Then install active directory on it then You can set group policy on all users from that.
    But if you have less than 10 Pcs then set simple group networks.
    Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
    Thanks for using FixYa.

Restaurant Pro Express - Shared Printer - wierd scenario


Delete printer from PC it is not connected to(PC2). Make sure you can print a test page in windows from PC it is connected to(PC1). Then check on sharing. Make sure the share name is the same as what 3rd PC is looking for(PC3). Print to printer from PC3. On PC2, set up and install as a network printer. If all PCs can print to kitchen printer from windows, then you should not have to make any changes in RPE.
Also, if you cloned everything including the RPE folders, you may not be syncing properly. Check by changing the price of something and saving. It should change on the other stations also. Make this test from each station.

Connect belkin f5d7130 to homehub 1.5


You need to connect all pc's and homehub to a switch so they can talk to one another. Then use the AP as a wireless access point to connect all wireless laptops, and connect the AP to the switch with ethernet cable, and you have a network. Just make sure that only your HH or AP supplies IP addresses or they will clash.

2 Eth Cards one for Internet & one for LAN


First of all, I would really recommend you to buy a Cable/DSL router. It is quite cheap, usualy more secure, much easier to configure and troubleshoot. Also, it does not require to have one PC up and running all the time, hense saving energy. Do you know that a PC running 24/7 may cost between 60$ and 100$ in electricity annually? This is more than the cost of a basic router!

But, since your question is about sharing your Internet connection with a PC, here are some guidelines. I will assume here that you are using Windows XP.

On PC1:
1. Connect the modem to Eth0 in the PC. Do not connect anything in the USB port of the modem.
2. Make sure that the link lights are lit both side. If they are not, you may need a cross-over cable (this is usualy not the case)
3. Configure Eth0 to get IP address DNS automatically
4. Disable (uncheck) all protocols except TCP/IP on Eth0.
5. Run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps.

On PC2:
Simply run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps. Specify and you Internet connection is through a Home or LAN network.

That should do it.

Ef3116 has different up and down speed.


PC1 may have a defective NIC card. Also, verify that PC1's NIC card is using an up-to-date driver and that it's interface speed and duplex settings are set to auto-negotiate.
