Re: Can't access to another computer on same network
Check this one out - three computer network, two running XP SP2, one running Vista. All of a sudden, one XP machine couldn't access a shared folder on the other XP machine but - get this - the Vista machine could access the XP's shared folder no problem. After turning off the Windows firewall on the two XP machines without luck (oh, yeah, I did the enable NETBIOS under TCP/IP thing too), I went back to the XP machine I was trying to share from and reinspected it. On a whim I turned off the firewall included with the Symantec Norton Security and suddenly everything was fine. The other XP machine couldn't even ping the second (sharing) XP box by machine name earlier. I don't know if Norton got a wached out update or what, but I'm relieved everything is working now.
Re: 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.

That is connect. You will need to connect the router to the modem with the Ethernet cable.
First connect the computer to the modem with the Ethernet cable. Make sure that you can access Internet without router.
Connect the computer to the Ethernet port 1 and modem to the Internet port on Linksys router. Open the setup page of the router. Change the Internet connection settings according to the Internet service provider. Create a wireless network and then connect your computer and other devices to the wireless network.
I have used Cat5e plenum Cable for my internet connection and I faced same problem. If you are just concerned with internet access and not access between devices on your LAN, then you just need to connect the first router LAN to the WAN port of the second router with the mentioned Ethernet cable. It is also in your best interest to make sure the IP ranges are different between the two DHCP servers you now have. That is, make sure they are not on the same subnet or serving up conflicting IP's.
Cable-modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN (or "Internet") port on the router
LAN port on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your laptop
Then, access the "built-in" web-server on the router,
and run the "Wireless Networking Setup" wizard:
* to set an SSID ("network-name")
* an encryption-level (Hint: choose 'wpa')
* a password for your wireless network
Then, disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer,
and then "wireless available wireless networks".
Select your newly-created network, and connect to it.
Dont enter the Router IP as WWW.192.168.0.1, Instead just type 192.168.0.1 and it should let you access the Router EWS Page. you are trying to access Internal network ( which we can call local network or LAN ) so do not use WWW.
In the Address bar of Internet Explorer, just type the IP Address.
ok then first take a ethernet cable and plug it to the output of the modem and into the input of of router(for the link sys this will be known as the port labeled internet. then use the software for the link-sys and give it a network then wireless connect your computers through that network.
You want to secure the wireless network. Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable. Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page. Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured
Plug the print server in the back of your computer using the ethernet port. Insert the setup cd into the same computer. Assign an IP address for you print server using 10.10.10.xxx. xxx=available address number on your network. If it requires the gateway address use 10.10.10.1 if that is the correct address of your Linksys router.
You can verify the correct router address from your computer. Make sure your computer is connected to the network (not the print server) and go into the control panel. Select Network Connections. Move the mouse to you network card. Press the right mouse button and select status. The gateway address is your router address.
If your laptop has a wireless capability you should be able to connect to the wireless network of your router, just view the available wireless network select the wireless name of your router and connected to it if it already say connected try to disconnect the ethernet cable from your laptop and access the internet wirelessly..........
