I would like to share files between two computers


There are several things you need in order to share files between two computers on a network:

1. You should both be in the same "workgroup" , in Win 7 it's called "homegroup"

2. You also need to have "file and printer sharing" enabled under your network connection properties

3. AND you also need to set the drives/folders or files you wish to share to "sharing" /"share as" in order to give permission to access

Note that with Windows 7 files that are to be shared can only be easily accessed under USER, PUBLIC folder. On older OS you can set most any drive and folder to a SHARE

To instruct you how to do these things I need to know what operating systems you have on the machines you wish to share files on.

Unable to access my Laptop on My Network from my Desktop. Desktop connected to D Link DI-524 via LAN Cable and Laptop connected to same router via Wifi. Please provide a solution how to access and share...


To enable file sharing you need to follow the below steps
I moved this to networking for better exposure. I'll give you some basic tips, but it's generally pretty simple.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
Let me know if this will help

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/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!

D-link DI-524 wireless - lan network connection


Yep. Vista sucks :-)

In the vista machine, you have to turn on a whole bunch of options. Right click Network, hilghlight properties and left click and it opens up Network and Sharing Center. Down at the bottom, you have a list of options. Start by turning on the options you need: File Sharing, Public File sharing, Printer Sharing etc. I'm pretty sure it's already done in the XP machine, but if not, check there too.

It should start to show network files between machines.

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).

Can't access to another computer on same network


Turn on file and printer sharing for microsoft networks. Find it in network connections. Right click your connection, then select properties. You must also provide at least one file or folder to share before anything will be seen on the networked pc's.
