this is our first attempt at networking,
what we want to do is......
we have two computer systems exactly the same, both with network cards installed
we are approx. 75 - 100ft apart
we have a NetGear 4 port Ethernet Hub
100' of RJ45 Cable
Both computers have windows 98 Second Edition
One printer is hooked up to one CPU
How do we go about properly networking so that my wife, sitting at her computer, can use the printer that is hooked up to my Computer and so that she can share the files that are loaded
on my computer (in MS-Word).
We are not sure how go about doing this, is there something we have to do on my computer in order to allow for printer sharing and file sharing.
A step by step explanation would be greatly appreciated in helping two novices out.
Thank You , Michael.
