Guidance setting up a shared connection :)

Hi, i [am] a computer expert, however, i [am not] a networking expert. lol.

so i have the following:

1 wireless router
1 laptop with wireless card
1 desktop computer - with no current link to internet.

this is what i want to do:

have the laptop connected to the wireless router .. wirelessly? (ha)
have the laptop also connect to my desktop computer, via LAN.
i would like the desktop computer to recieve internet acess, through the laptops wireless connection.

i am clueless how to do this, ive tried following steps shown from other research but it just confuses me..

its isnt as easy as it seems
BECAUSE i get this error when enabling internet connection sharing:

a LAN connection is already configured with the ip adress that is required for automatic ip adressing.


this is what i have done so far.

wireless connection connected to router set up using manuel settings

IP Address: 192.168.0.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.2
WINS Server:

and on my LAN the settings are set to automatic. so whats the problem? i dont get what i have to do, lol. do i have to configure my router ip adress or does that not even enter the equation.

can you run me through every single step, treating me like a newbie. i only wish i could have pictures aswell ... lol

Hi, how to copy from one hard disk to another hard disk through networking thanks


Good day to you. Basically you cannot copy the entire hard disk over the network. First you have to put the files you want to copy into the "shared folder". After that, you can copy from any computer in the network that the folder is shared.

How resolve cannot "Connect to Network Printer" with Windows Vista


One of the more interesting errors in Windows Vista happens when you try to connect to a shared network printer. Most of the time you'll receive an "Access is Denied" error when trying to connect even though you can see the printer on the network and everything else is working properly.
Everything else on the network appears to work properly, shared files, internet access, etc. However, you just cannot access the ahared printer and print.
The solution is to add the printer as a local printer and then try printing. Follow the directions below to accomplish this.

1. Go into Control Panel 2. Underneath the Hardware and Sound category, click on Printer 3. Click on Add a printer from the top menu 4. Click on Add a Local Printer 5. Choose Create a New Port with type of port remaining Local Port, then click Next 6. In the Port Name box type the path to the printer you wish to connect to and Click Ok
Ex. \\mycomputer\myprinter
If the computer you wish to connect to is named Bob and the printer is called HP then the path would be \\Bob\HP
7. In the Install Printer Driver screen, select your printer from the list or choose Have Disk and find the location of the printer drivers on the computer then click Next and then click Finish. 8. You should now see the printer installed in the Printers window. 9. Right-click on the printer and click Properties 10. On the General tab, click Print Test Page to test the printer.
You should now be able to printer from Windows Vista to this networked printer without any problems.

How do i build a local area network in windows xp?


On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at smichael@phoenixschool.net and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!

Limit or no conectivity problem


I understand that you are using the Windows Internet Connection Sharing to share your internet connection to your other computer.

If you don't have a router to share the connection then you are using Windows ICS connection.

When you enable ICS, the network adapter connected to the local area network is assigned a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.

You can check this site for more information
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/ics_xp

You can try to connect the two computers first without the internet connection.

Example : PC A 192.168.0.2
You can set the IP addresses manually, just set the tcp/ip properties and from that area you can set the IP address manually.

And for PC B 192.168.0.3
You dont need to set the ip address for the gateway and dns since you are just testing the connection of the two computer.

They should belong to the same workgroup example HOME and set the computer name to PC1 and PC2.

You can right click MY COMPUTER then select PROPERTIES then you will able to see the computer name.

To start the wizard
1.
Choose Control Panel from the Start menu.
2.
Click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Set up or change your home or small office network.

Networking


there are two simple ways to resolve this. one way is to turn one of your computers into an internet gateway and share your internet connection with your other computer. another way is to use a device called a router to share your internet connection to both your computers. which of these would you like to try? before answering this know that using a router is much expensive than the first solution. however, in the first solution offered turning one of your computers into a gateway means it has to stay on for the other computer to be connected to the internet. go over these options and tell me which would you prefer. then i can walk you through with what to do and buy.

Setting up my HOME network! HELP!!!


Sounds like something is not right with the sharing... Assuming that computer 1 (the computer with the printer) is sharing and everything is set correctly, I would change the workgroup name. Instead of using "MSHOME" use say some basic word like "example" or some other name.

Ironically for my workgroup here I call it "StarWars"

needless to say my printers and everything shares just perfect. When you use "MShome" there's restrictions on what XP professional and XP home machines see on the network. I changed the workgroup name and that solved that problem.

Be sure to put all computers on the same workgroup name that you pick. You can even choose your first name if you want.

Internet sharing


Hi, Could be done. On the Dell XP - 1. Activate your Internet Connection Sharing. Go to Control Panel, Click on Network Connections, right click on your Local Area Connection, Properties, Advanced tab, check Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection. In Home networking connection, choose "Local Area Connection", OK; 2. Back to General settings, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on Properties, tick Use the following IP address: IP address 192.168.0.1, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.0.1, if you know ITT DNS use them otherwise tick "Obtain DNS server address automatically." You have to connect the DellXP with the DellVista using a crossover networking cable. On the Dell Vista- 1. In your Network Connections, right click on your Local Area Connection, Properties, click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click on Properties, tick Use the following IP address: IP address 192.168.0.2, Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.0.1, if you know ITT DNS use them otherwise tick "Obtain DNS server address automatically." The above method will also work with peer to peer wireless networking. It might also facilitate connection if you enable auto-detect proxy settings in your browser. There are other methods. This is also better explained at Microsoft support Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Re: Jet Eye ESI-9900 networking problems


Start with the cabling. Check to make sure the Adapter LAN port is properly connected to your switch port and that you are getting a link light on both ends. It appears that this device can only run at 10mbps, so if the port is set to 100 or 1000, or even has the duplex set to full, you are not going to get a physical connection. Next, check to see if there is any diagnostic utility to confirm that the IR port on the table is infact communicating with the docking cradle. Since this product is 10 years old and the company has since been bounght by a software company, documentation has been very hard to find. I did mange to find a FAQ re: setup here: http://resolution.extendedsystems.com/ESI/Service+Support/XTNDAccess+Infrared+Connections/Troubleshooting/XtndAccess_TS_Net_1.htm And two Microsoft articles mentioning that the IR driver has to be up-to-date in order to work: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/149449/EN-US/ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/149450/EN-US/ Next, check that you have IP and IP address and IP connectivity. This can be done via the command prompt by typing the following command: ipconfig /all If you do have an IP address, then try to ping the Windows XP laptop with the following command in the command prompt: ping 192.168.1.100 NOTE: Replace the 192.168.1.100 with the IP address of the laptop. This info can be obtained with the same ipconfig /all command listed above. If you get a response from the ping, thats good and means you have end-to-end connectivity. Then you will just have to check to make sure the microsoft client and file and print sharing services on installed and enabled on both the tablet and laptop. If you have folders shares on them, you should be able to go to Start -> Run and type the following and hit OK: \\192.168.1.100\ NOTE: Replace the 192.168.1.100 with the IP address of the other machine. If you did not get a response from the ping command, then you have an IP connectivity issue and will need to trouble shoot that further. That could be anything from bad drivers to misconfigured IP settings or DHCP settings. I know this seems like a lot, but there really could be any number of reasons why this is not working. To close, I will try to summarize. 1) Check the physical network connections on both computers 2) Check the TCP/IP network settings on both computers 3) Check the Microsoft Client & File and Print Sharing settings on both computers.
