I have broadband wireless and talk from Wanadoo (Now Orange, previously Freeserve). This service supplies a Livebox which according to another answer posted on this site "Turns out the Livebox is a rebadged Inventel DV4210 Wireless ADSL Modem Router
I have a desktop PC and a laptop and I would like to be able to create a wireless home network if possible. Both machines run Windows XP and I have tried the wireless network wizard using a USB flash memory to copy the files when that screen is reached. When I insert the USB memory key into the Livebox USB socket nothing seems to happen and when I go through the other steps the Network is not created.
I have previously connected the two machines directly with a cable network and been able to use file and printer sharing. I would like to do the same thing wirelessly, if possible (ideally I would also like to include my daughters laptop so she can have wireless connection to the printer when at home but this is not essential).
Both machines are currently configured so they can use the Livebox to connect to the internet via broadband (without the other having to be turned on). I just can't get them to "talk" to each other.
I'd be obliged for any assistance you can provide. Regards.
