Connecting 2 PCs through Zoom X5 (5554)

I'm using WinXP Pro.
I have a Zoom X5 (5554) and 2 computers, both connected to X5. PC1 is connected to X5 through the USB port and PC2 is connected through Ethernet port. I can connect to the Internet well on both computers. But I don't know how to connect one computer to another through X5.

For example I want to copy a file from PC1 to PC2 or vice versa.

How can I do that?

Have you got file sharing setup on each PC.

Start - Control Panel - Network and Dial Up Connections

Right click on the Local Area COnnection and select properties.
If under the components list there is one called "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft NEtworks" then thats good. if not then add it by
clicking install, double clicking client and selecting it.
restart if it asks you to.

Once up and running go into my computer and right click on your hard drive and go to properties - there should be a tab called Sharing.
Select "New Share" and give it a name etc.

Thats about it - make sure you do this on both pcs.
