have no file and printer sharing with a wireless VPN router
Posted on 2007-08-11
I am having no luck with file and printer sharing on a Linksys wireless VPN network at home.
Currently, we have three computers networked using infrastructure mode with a Linksys WRVS4400N router. All three computers are connected to the Internet through a Linksys cable modem through Comcast. Repeat, all three computers have separate and functional Internet connections.
But there is no file sharing between any of the 3 computers this home network (subnet) 192.168.2.1. Yes, file sharing is enabled. On all three separate computers the small icon in the left lower hand tray "local area connection" is disabled automatically once the wireless connection is established.
Occasionally from command line NET VIEW will show all three computers, but not consistently. I am can ping some computers by IP address. I cannot ping by IP computer name.
So the main question remains: what do I need to do to enable full file and printer sharing between all computers?
