Please help me get started! Want to share files and printer via network
Posted on 2006-06-09
I recently set up a Linksys Wireless Router (via hardwired cat5) to share my DSL connection between two XP PCs. I now want to enable the file-sharing, printer and hopefully scanner sharing as well through XP's network.
I have tried running the network wizard, but it seems to just run and then nothing happens. Would someone please walk me through the set up or configuration so I can get this simple network up and running? And do I need to set up a password so that my network is protected? If so, please go over that setup as well.
PCs are already connected via cat5 through a Linksys Wireless Router WRT-54G. There may be a wireless connection via laptop in the future, but that's not the main issue here.
Thanks for the help!
