Is there a way that I can access the internet from my laptop (came with wireless) to my desktop (with DI-514/DWL-520 wireless router and card) with DSL? When I try IE from the laptop, it gives me a connection problem. If I run diagnostics on it it gives me a choice of wireless or ethernet connection. Since both are used to access the internet, I chose to run both and have a lovely printout which probably tells somebody something.
I am also having problems saving and accessing files from one to the other. The two are talking to each other, but when I go to save I get a message saying "make sure disc is not full or write protected and that file is not in use." I suspect there is some sharing setting that I need to tweak.

you have the internet on desktop pc and you want to connect your laptop right?
open control panel select network set up wizzard and follow instructions for shared network.
if you connect dsl to notebook you need to have installed modem device drivers and configured device and done basically everything you had to do on pc,by disconnecting dsl from pc obviosly youre gonna lose the internet.
get your self a wireless router if not already have one , that way you set up pc wired and link laptop via wireless
Having your laptop sitting next to your desktop will not let your laptop connect to the DSL link.
You need what's called a Wireless Router. (assuming your laptop has a wireless adapter, if not you'll need a network cable for that.
1. Go to the store, buy a wireless router 2. install router in between your DSL modem and the computer. 3. Plug the WAN port into the DSL modem (cable is usually included with the router) 4. Plug the desktop into the back of one of the ports of the wireless router 5. Run the setup disk 6. For manual configuration of the router you can usually go to: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 depending on the brand) 7. If you don't know anything about networking, let the install disk do all the work. 8. Follow the instructions on what it tells you your configuration is for your wireless network. 9. Go to your laptop, apply said instructions. 10. ??? 11. Profit.
Most desktop computers do not come standard with wireless connectivity, and the 530s is no exception. To connect to the internet, you will need either an ethernet cable to run between the computer and the DSL box, or a wireless card, which can be installed inside your computer, allowing you to access wireless networks.
Ok so your computer says conencted to wireless network,
Check if the pc is getting a valid ip address follow this Click start>RUN>type CMD>click OK>then type ipconfig you should be getting a 192..x.x.x if you're getting a 169.x.x.x ir means that you're really not connected to your wireless network, if there's a wireless security enable on your network make sure you have the correct key.
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).
