I have a created a wireless network using the above-mentioned router but there are certain things I want to do about which I have no clue. I have a PC which is connected to the internet 24/7 and is connected to the router through a LAN wire. I have a laptop through which I access the wireless network. The problem is, I want the shared folders on the PC to be accessible on the laptop through the network. In other words, I want to see the PC on the network! It must be possible but I have no clue how!
Also, after installing this router, I have noticed that the internet connection on the laptop behaves a little weird. Whenever I start downloading something, all the bandwidth seems to get allocated to the download and everything else stops working, only the download works.

ok so you currently have the machine running on wireless at the moment yes?

with wireless, your speeds will never be the same as wired, its 54Mbps Max compared to 100Mbps standard.....so when you dl, the speed will drop hugely

when your machine is on wireless, can you ping it from other machines, can other machines ping you?

how have you configured your router, is it providing DHCP for your machines or are you using static IP's?
