Wireless Network - Rookie setting things up. Can't see printer or files
Posted on 2005-04-18
I have a wireless network I just setup and am having problems. I can get to the internet on my laptop through the network, but I can't see or print to the printer on my desktop printer or see my hard drive on the desktop.
I have a new Dell dimension 4700 with a Netgear WGT624 v2 router. Windows XP home edition
I have set the root of C drive to "Share this folder on the network" & "Allow network users to change my files" and given it a share name
I have shared the printer
I have a IBM T30 with Windows XP pro. I have a Cisco Aironet 340 card.
I can't make printing work or see my desktop files. Using Cisco software (most updated version) I can get WEP security to work, but the only thing that works is the internet. I cannot see or print to the printer. I cannot see my desktop hard drive.
Before the upgrade of the Cisco softward, I couldn't use the card with WEP security, but I could see my desktop hard drive and use my printer through the laptop.
Thanks in advance for any help.
