Question about 3Com LinkBuilder TP/12 Networking Hub
A network hub allows computers to be connected together...up to 12 of
them in this case...but it doesn't provided any other network services
such as DHCP (automatic address assignment). I may be able to provide
better information if you can tell me what operating system you're
Here's one way to set up a network for file sharing...if you're using Microsoft Windows XP:
Connect the computers to the hub and turn them all on. You may need to manually assign addresses to the computers, (ask if you need a detailed procedure) but Windows XP will usually assign itself a default address.
On each computer, click on Start -- Control Panel -- System -- Computer Name -- Network ID -- Now give the computer a name and Workgroup name. In order for the computers to share files, the workgroup names must be identical on every computer.
Next, click on My Computer and Right-Click on Shared Documents -- Sharing & Security -- Share this folder on the network
Now if you click on My Network Places, it should be possible to see the shared folders on the other computers.
Good luck with this....and I hope this is helpful!!
