To gain access the router's setup information, on the desktop PC, enter the IP address of the router into your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and check you have not enabled the MAC access list feature.
To find the couture's IP address, enter cmd in the Start => Run box and then enter ipconfig in the Command Prompt window that comes up. The Default Gateway is the router's IP address.
If you use access lists, you need to enter the MAC address of the laptop in the list. To find this, right-click on My Computer, choose the Hardware tab, and click the button to open Device Manager. In Device Manager click the plus sign beside Network adapters and then click on the wireless card to show its Properties page. The MAC address at the bottom of the Advanced tab. The address is string of 12 characters using the numbers 0 to 9 an the letter A to F (hexadecimal, which is base 16), written in pairs separated by colons, such as 00:15:A0:66:14:B1.
If you have wireless encryption enabled, check the type of encryption being used. You are likely to see the old WEP option, which comes in 64- and 128-bit versions, and/or WPA, which also has versions, the best of which is called WPA-PSK, because it is the most secure, but be aware that it may cause problems with older computers that either don't support it at all or that may have bugs.
The WEP security key is a string of hexadecimal characters (0 to 9 and A to F). Each character represents four bits of the key. The key length is 24 bits less than the encryption type, so a 64-bit WEP only uses a key of 40 bits or 10 hexadecimal characters, while 128-bit WEP uses 104 bits or 26 hexadecimal characters.
To avoid typing such a long string, many router manufacturers have added a key-generator feature that generates a long key from a short password. The problem with this feature is that it is not part of the wireless standard, so a given password cannot be guaranteed to generate the same key unless all of the network adapters are of the same make as the router.
A common mistake when setting up a wireless network is to choose to use WEP encryption and then use the key-generator to generate a key. Laptop PCs with built-in adapters usually don't work unless you type in the full 10- or 26-character generated hexadecimal key. If you must use WEP encryption, only use the 128-bit version, because the 64-bit version can easily be cracked by hackers. Enter your own 26-digit hexadecimal key, such as 0123456789ABCDEF01234567890, which just repeats the hexadecimal characters ( the numbers 0 to 9 and the letters A to F), or perhaps a telephone number repeated until it makes 26 characters, such as 78535578535578535578535578. You don't have to use the letters.
Both of your computers are new enough to support WPA-PSK encryption, which is the most secure version, so you should use it. This makes use of a passphrase - a long password that can be made up of several words, which part of the wireless standard, so it should work on any wireless equipment.
If that doesn't fix the problem, try disabling the Norton firewall on the laptop. (A Netgear router can be configured to protect its network. For details about several security features used by Netgear routers see: Security: Comparing NAT, Static Content Filtering, SPI, and Firewalls.) If doing that works, then the Norton firewall is blocking traffic. You can also want to update the router's firmware with an update from the manufacturer's website. The latest European version for your router is V4.01.37.

The possiable reason for the same is that the account that you are trying to use to access the shared folder does not have a password.

Please apply a password on the account and you would be able to access the folder

Purchased a gigaware cat5e crossover network cable to transfer files from one older computer to a new one. Cant get it to tranfer info.


So that you will be able to transfer your file from one PC to the other you have to share your folder first.
1. Share your folder in your old computer. Right click the folder then click Properties and Choose Sharing Tab. Check Share this folder (For windows 7 or vista you have to click Advance sharing button first) 2. Open your explorer from the other computer and Choose Network. Now, you should see the shared folder where your files are. Then start copying the files to your new computer.
*Note: you can also delete the files from the other computer by setting permission of the folder properties.

Network access denied


Follow the steps to Sharing the files

Your computers are already connected to a network — i.e., they’re all already able to browse the Internet using the same router..

1 : Open the Network and Sharing Center window by clicking on the Windows orb in the lower left corner, and then either right-clicking on Network and selecting “Properties”, or opening the Control Panel and double-clicking “Network and Sharing Center.
2 : If your network type is “Public,” you need to change it to “Private”:
  1. To the right of the network name and location type, click Customize.
  2. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
  3. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close.
3 : Under “Sharing and Discovery” in the bottom half of the Network and Sharing Center window, you need to turn all the settings from “Off” to “On” by clicking on the down arrow next to each setting, clicking on “Turn on …”, and clicking on “Apply.” But see some pointers below:
  1. For the “Password protected sharing” setting: you may want to leave this “On” or turn “Off” at your discretion. (I turned mine off.)
  2. For the “Public folder sharing” setting:
    1. If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    2. But if you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
4 : You’re done with the Network and Sharing Center window. Close it via the “X” button.
5 : Click the Windows orb at the lower left corner of your computer, and click on Computer
6 :
n the Computer window, navigate to the folder containing the file(s) or folder(s) that you want to share — e.g., “Pictures” or “Documents” or a specific file or folder within. Note: don’t open the folder itself that you want to share — just navigate to the folder that contains this folder.
7 : Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Share. The File Sharing window is displayed. (Click picture for a larger version.)
8 : If you have password protected sharing enabled: Use the File Sharing window to select which users can access the shared folder and their permission level. To allow all users, select Everyone in the list of users. By default, the permission level for a selected user is Reader. Users cannot change files or create new files in the share. To allow a user to change files or folders or create new files or folders, select Co-owner as the permission level.
9 : If you have password protected sharing disabled (like I do): Click the drop-down arrow inside the blank field in the File Sharing window, and select the Guest or Everyone account. Click “Add.” Then for that new account, click on the down arrow under “Permission Level” to change it to Co-owner (if you want anybody to read and modify files) or leave it at “Reader” (if you want other computers to just read but not modify your files).
10 : Click “Share”, then “Done.”


CRITICAL NOTE: If you selected “Everyone” when sharing a folder, you’re also making its contents available to any computer that joins this network. Many households, including mine, have wireless Internet via a wifi router. If you don’t have WEP encryption turned on, then I could just drive up and park on the street near your home, open my laptop, let it join your network via your wifi, and then nose around through your files. It’s particularly important that you have WEP encryption turned on for your wifi network.

Networking Problem


You would have to share that main disk and set all access permissions on, this is comprimising to security though. Here is one way of doing it:

If you want to share folders simply right-click the folder, and choose the Properties option.

Now choose the Advanced Sharing button.

Now you should be able to check the box "Share this folder", and choose a share name, which is easy for you to remember. Now you can see it and access it from anywhere in your network.

I suggest you make sure that your Vista is configured to connect to a private network. To do this follow these steps:

1. Click Start, right-click Network, click Properties.
-The Network Sharing Center window displays the network type in parenthesis after the network name.

  • Require user names and passwords for other computers that connect to the shared folders and printers of this computer
To enable file sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to File sharing.
  2. Within the File sharing settings, click Turn on file sharing, and then click Apply.
To enable public folder sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Public folder sharing.

    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    • If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
  3. Click Apply.
To enable printer sharing and share all of your connected printers, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Printer sharing.
  2. Within the Printer sharing settings, click Turn on printer sharing, and then click Apply.
[Optional] To enable password protected sharing, do the following:
  1. In the Sharing and Discovery section of the Network and Sharing Center window, click the down arrow next to Password protected sharing.
  2. Within the Password protected sharing settings, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply.

Wireless network between vista & xp


Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security. To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.
