Sharing files and printers between PCs in a wired network and PCs in wireless network.
Posted on 2007-10-10
We have a network with the following setup: There are 10 users connected wired to a 16-port Linksys workgroup switch. This workgroup swtich is connected to a port of an 8-port Linksys BEFSR81 router. This router is connected to a Cayman DSL modem which connects to the main DSL phone line. Users are able to access the Internet and share files and printers. Users are a mix of Windows 2000, XP and Vista.
I have just added a new Linksys WRT150N wireless-N router, and connected it to one of the ports of Linksys BEFSR81 router. The wireless router is being used by 2 notebook PCs with Windows XP. The 2 notebook PCs can use the Internet and access each other but cannot access or "see" any of the files and printers of the wired PCs.
What we want to happen is to enable the 2 notebook PCs with wireless network connection to access the files and printers of the wired PCs in the network, and vice versa, i.e., the wired PCs to access the files of the 2 notebook PCs. The files and printers in all PCs are already shared with permissions also defined.
What do I need to do to make this happen? Thank you in advance for your help.
