Wireless Home Network

I'm having problems setting up a network between my two computers to be able to share files, printers, etc. My primary PC is running Windows XP and my laptop is running Vista Home Premium. I have sucessfully connected both to the internet through my Netgear WGR614 router but cant's get the computers to recognize or talk to each other.

Thanks,

Tom

If your router only functions as a gateway and not a switch you may have difficulty doing this.

We received a new laptop for Christmas and would like to network it with our home PC. Both computers are running Windows 7.


well what you do isgo to controll panel>network and internet>homegroup>and follow the prompts or go to set password and make sure it is the same as your other pc if you have not networked before on either do the same on both making sure they are the same the best way is to leave the name as homegroup but change the password to the same as what it will be on the other pc contact me and let me know if this helped and if not i wll talk you through it if this has helped please give me thumbs up because people are just taking answers and not voting

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.

File Sharing


Hi,

Here’s a very short summary of how to create a home network:

1) Create a named Workgroup (computer network name).
In Windows, the defaults are MSHOME or WORKGROUP, but you can choose your own

2) Add computers to the named Workgroup

3) Enable file and/or printer sharing.


Here are some resources to help you:

1. Windows XP has a wizard to walk you through it - see tutorial here

2. For Vista, try this link for a detailed overview: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727037.aspx

These links might help too:
http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/how-to-create-a-pc-network-workgroup.html

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/connect-to-and-share-files-with-other-pcs-on-your-.html

3. When it comes to sharing folders, there are two main ways to do this. You can either 1) right click the folder and enable sharing through the shortcut menu., or 2) add the file/folder to ‘Shared Documents’ (for XP) or ‘Public Folder’ (for Vista).

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if you have any difficulties. Good luck!

Cannot setup home wireless network between computers


Hi!
Since all computers are online, you do not need to change any setting on the router for the computers to share file or resources.

If you are using Windows XP - try this link:

For Vista:

I hope that helps!

Good luck and have a nice say!

How do I set up a home network without internet?


Hi

By default, your wireless connection for your 2wire 1000HW is enabled.Assuming that everything is installed properly in your laptop ie wireless cards etc. than you can view your wireless connection using Dell Wireless connection tool and HP wireless tool. Your know its your network when it says 2wirexxxx {x=combined numbers}. To locate the built-in, 10-digit wireless encryption key for your system, please look at the bottom of the product [2wire] near the bar code label - looks like this : [xxxxxxxxxx].

If you want to access the 2wire Graphic Unit Interface ,you can access it by opening your browser and on your address bar type in homeportal- assuming you are able to connect to your 2wire wirelessly. You can view your network and change you wireless settings. This may also help you :

http://shastademo.2wire.com/rgw3-3/rgw/3-3/homeportal/network/wireless_settings.html

To connect your printer you must have a Print Server [ dep[ends on what model of laserjet you are using } and connected to your printer. Again you will need the encryption key to get it running. You must share your printer on each laptop by going to control panel and share it . In there you willl have the chance to change and modify the settings. You can also use the Windows File and Sharing Wizard. to get it both running.

Hope that would help you a bit. Pls feel free to post your questions in Fixya for further assistance.

Wish you all the best.

Cheers.

You didn't say what operating system you have but check your Network and Sharing Center in Control panel and turn on the file and printer sharing feature in Windows.
Using Vista, click on Control Panel- Click on Network and Sharing Center-configure settings.
Hope this helps.

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).
