Simple Home Networking
Posted on 2004-03-23
This probably has been asked before but here it goes.
I have two computers I want to share files between and share the printer. Here is my current setup and the problem I encountered last night.
I have DSL modem connected to Linksys 4port switch router. To the routher my home computer is connected, my PS2 is connected and I connected a Wireless Access Point which connects my Laptop.
Should I be using ICS or no need? Can the router do all the sharing for me, If so how do I access it?
I experimented setting up ICS on both computers, On the laptop I when I click see workgroup computers, I see my home computer and my laptop computer. When I click the home computer is says I have no access to it. When I go on my home computer I dont see my laptop computer at all.
I also have ZoneAlarm on my home computer running.
Sorry if this sounds confusing just trying to put in as much info as possible.
