I have a desktop computer that is connected to my ADSL modem and printer, and it is also connected to a wireless router. My laptop computer, which has wireless, can connect to the Internet using the desktop's ADSL modem and router without any problem, but I would also like to be able to print from the laptop, as well as share files between the desktop computer and laptop.

How can I do this? Can someone please post some detailed instructions?

Hello. My question is almost identical to Tanna's -- except perhaps for the details of my goofy system. Should we discuss here or should I start a new thread?

I have an ancient desktop (Pentium III 500 running Win98SE), attached to my wireless router (Westell 327W) attached to my DSL service. Just bought a lovely new laptop (running XP). The laptop's wireless connection is hitting the DSL flawlessly (which I sure don't want to screw up) but I'd love to know what I need to set up in order to network the two computers as well.

Just like Tanna, I'd like to, from the laptop, access the desktop's printer and scanner, as well as transfer files amongst the drives in both computers.

Do I need a separate wireless card for the desktop, or can I already do this through its ethernet card? Will I have any problems unique to the XP & 98SE coexistence? Etc. Etc.

Thanks in advance for any help, as I'm "old at" computers, but new at networking!

Although this post isn't strictly related to an issue on my computer, perhaps it can still be addressed as it deals with the general security of a network. The physical setup of the network (which does provide for fully functional internet access) is as follows in terms of wire connectivity:

The wireless router is connected via an ethernet cable on its WAN port to a LAN port on a wired firewall. This wired firewall is connected to the modem via ethernet from WAN to WAN.

This configuration as previously stated provides for internet access. My question however, is if the external IP address on the wireless router is protected by the built-in security features of the wired firewall (once having enabled them in the firewall's web-based utility), or if the firewall is simply acting as a switch, in that it successfully relays the connection from the modem to the router without implementing its security features in the process.

If it is the latter, then I ask how to configure this setup so that the wireless router utilizes the firewall's security features properly.

I've got a bit of a problem I'm having trouble solving. I have a Desktop which I'm trying to network with an EeePC for the purposes of internet connection and file sharing. Both are running Win7 Ultimate. I'm using a USB Mobile Broadband dongle on the Desktop, and a crossover cable between the two. Now, I can get the file sharing set up no problems with the Homegroup feature, and internet connection sharing works fine too. But my concern is that for some reason, Win7 is lumping the 'Local Area Connection' for the crossover cable and the Mobile Broadband connection together as the same 'Unidentified Network'. I've attached a screen shot to illustrate.

I don't like this. It means that in order to set up a homegroup (which is the only way I've been able to figure out how to get the file sharing to work), I have to set the 'Unidentified Network' to the 'Home' location. Considering this includes my connection to the internet, it really doesn't seem secure at all, especially if I enable file sharing.

Does anyone know how I can split the two connections ( the Crossover LAN and the mobile broadband) into two separate 'unidentified networks', so I can apply the 'Home' template to one, and the 'Public' to the other? Or any other means of setting up a secure crossover network with a shared internet connection?

Thanks in advance

I have heard of people connecting just a usb wireless lan adapter to a win xp desktop and configuring the desktop as a wireless router for another laptop with a wireless card to access to the internet. The only cons about this idea is that the winxp machine must be left on for the laptop to be able to access the internet. The pros is that i save on a wireless router. Can someone lead me through this or maybe there's a similiar weblink to help.

With XP where laptops have both a Wireless NIC and a LAN (Wired) NIC I configure the IP settings identically except for the laptop's IP address - eg.

Wireless Adapter
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Preferred DNS Server: ...
Secondary DNS Server: ...

LAN Adapter
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:
Preferred DNS Server: ...
Secondary DNS Server: ...

It is then a simple matter to switch off the Wireless Adapter & plug in an ethernet cable or unplug the cable and turn on the Wireless Adapter to switch the connection type. This has worked fine for years.

This does not seem to work for Vista. I can only have a Default Gateway on the active NIC and must make it so before I activate it otherwise I get the following error messages when trying to configure the NIC's IP settings.

"Warning - Multiple default gateways are intended to provide redundancy to a single network (such as an intranet or the internet). They will not function properly when the gateways are on two separate, disjoint networks (such as one on your intranet and one on the Internet) Do you want to save this configuration?"

If I ignore the warnings, then there is no Internet Connection. Is there any way I can achieve the simplicity that was available under Windows XP?

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Configuring Wireless & LAN NIC Gateways on Laptop

Hi Woody,

If you want simplicity use DHCP and only one connection at a time.....If you specify identical Default gateways and DNS address`s on active connections Vista will try use both and in your case they are both identical so it gets confused.

Just use one connection at a time or change the IP range for one adapter and use DHCP or Vista will just keep confusing itself with what default connection it should use.

I'm trying to set up a wireless workgroup at home and am wondering if I'm doing it right so far. Here's how I have it configured so far....maybe someone can tell me if I'm on the right track:

1. 1 DSL modem/4 port switch/wireless capable(IP with range from to with a hardwire from one of the ports to the Internet/Uplink port on a linksys 4 port/wireless router(IP

2. First router on channel 1, second on channel 6

3. Both have the same SSID

4. Both are WEP enabled with the same key

That's all I can remember for now. I'm trying to have seamless crossover when moving away from one router and getting closer to the other. Also, will I need to configure anything on the routers to have File and Printer Sharing work? I have read that NetBIOS has some issues with using multiple wireless routers.

A:Configuring multiple wireless routers

I'd make them different SSID's. You can put both of them in the list of preferred connections. That's how I run my routers, but I use WPA here.

I'm trying to ensure I have wireless coverage in my entire house and having extreme difficulty getting all machines to play nicely

Wireless modem router #1 (downstairs in my house) is connected to the ADSL line and has the following config:

IP Address =
DHCP pool
Subnet =
Wifi channel = 1

Wireless router #2 (upstairs) is connected by ethernet cable to Wireless modem router #1 and has the following config:

IP Address =
DHCP off
Subnet =
Wifi channel = 11
Different SSID and encryption key to Wireless modem router #1

With this configuration, I can connect to the internet via both routers and all seems to be well. Except... having established a connection through either one, my machines will only make a pretend connection with the other one. By "pretend", I mean that the (Windows) machine says it has an excellent connection to the router but can only see machines on the LAN - it cannot get to the internet even though other machines are connected through the same router to the internet.
For example, if I'm sitting next to the downstairs router and establish a connection with it, all is well. Then I move upstairs and my machine switches to the upstairs router. Signal strength will be reported as "Excellent" and I'll be able to connect to the local NAS or printer but no external devices or sites.

I didn't know where I should post this, mods please move as appropriate.

I recently changed ISP from Tiscali to Direct Save Telecom. I received a letter the other day saying that the switch had been made. However I still have the same issues as before and haven't done anything actively to 'connect' to their provider. The router is still configured to Tiscali. I'm a little confused as to how it all works.

Anyway I have been attempting to configure the router to DST, assuming this would complete the switch and halt the Tiscali usage.

So I entered in my browser and entered the setup wizard. When asked for the ISP DST wasn't on the list and this means I have to manually enter some things. When I just tried going with the default, it wouldn't connect, only inputting the old Tiscali details reconnected me. I don't have a clue what they refer to and my DST literature doesn't suggest what I should input there:

Connection type: PPPoE, PPPoA, Dynamic/Fixed IP (1483 bridged), Static IP (IPOA), Modem Only (Disable Internet Sharing)

IP assigned by ISP: Yes/No (No opens up more fields)

VPI/VCI: Both require numerical entries

Encapsulation: VC MUX, LLC

MMU: Another numerical entry, default is 1454

Could anyone give me an idea what to enter in these fields?

I'm stumped. Thanks for your help.

If its a simple router, then its mainly dependent on your modem a;readu having access to the ISP service already. Then configuring your router to use the modem as a gateway..

If its a combo unit, or the modem, then the settings you may need to tweak with. I'm not familiar in what your ISP settings are for you, since i don't live in the UK, but theres a few things to try..

-Reset your unit to manufacturer's default
-download the latest firmware from the manufacturer and update
-read/download the manual for your unit and have a read. Often it will give you explanations of what each things do and mean.
-contact your provider and ask them if they can assist you in someway..

I'm trying to set up a home network, so far I have a wired network where I have a domain controller running with AD, DNS and DCHP. On this machine (physical) I have 2 ethernet cards. I have a wired connection coming from the main IP Router to this machine, then i have a connection from the 2nd ethernet card going to a 8 port switch which i have a wireless AP connected.

What I am trying to configure is that I can turn the wireless connection off on the main IP router and use the wireless AP as the main wireless connection to the network but i'm not sure on which way round i need to configure the IP's, default gateways, etc...

The IP Router has an ip range of - and the Default Gateway is

On the Domain Controller:
I have Ethernet 1 configured as IP: Default Gateway: (Set to share the internet connection)
Ethernet 2 IP: Default Gateway: DNS:,

DHCP is disabled on the main ip router and the DHCP server on the machine is giving out ip address from -

With this setup I am getting errors that the machine can't connect to the internet and any devices connection to the AP cannot see the Network.

I am new to the network infrastructure setup and so any advice would be greatfully appreciated.

A:Configuring Wireless Access Point

Make sure you set a static IP address for your server since you turned off DHCP for the main router, thus your Windows server will not be served automatically with an IP and DNS information.

Then afterwards, confirm your machine is able to ping the default gateway (your router) and then once that is established, then you would just connect your LAN together as you normally would.

I have a D Link 624 router connected to my computer that's running windows XP SP2.
I had the network up and running for about 6 months with no problems. I had to go away for about a week and when I came back it wouldn't connect to the internet anymore. I ran the ethernet cable directly from the dsl modem to the computer and couldn't connect that way either. I called verizon and they had me type in and the helped me through the setup process and I was back online. I still can't get the network to work though. After hooking the network back up I typed in for the D Link configuration page. At login I typed in admin and left the password blank as instructed. The configuratin page won't load. The login screen just keeps coming back. I probably shouldn't have touched the reset button on the router but I did.
I went to the D Link support page and tried different things with no luck.

A:configuring a wired network

If you have two (or more) devices connected to the same router they are already on the same network.

With Windows 10 then you can try to use a Homegroup or you can enable file and printer sharing. I think that enabling file and printer sharing is similar to the following (I can check later if this doesn't work) ...

Short description for Windows 7 and 8/8.1 file and printer sharing:

Go into the Network and Sharing Center from the Control Panel or from the Network icon in the Notification Area. Your network must be designated 'Private' (or 'Home' or 'Work'). Click on Change advanced sharing settings. In the Private or Home or Work section you can configure File and printer sharing, Public folder sharing, and Password protected sharing.

You may want to change the Workgroup name. To check it or change it right click on "Computer" and select "Properties."

You must uninstall or properly configure any non-windows firewall (security suite).

I have a problem. I have a linksys Wirless 4-port router and a linksys wireless USB adapter (WUSB11 version 2.6). That is what I'm trying to get working on my desktop. I also have a laptop that my boss let me borrow to get me working at home with the desktop. The laptop has a YDI wireless card and it is reading the router's signal just fine and it's working and everything... so my laptop is working. I know I'm getting the signal. And so I'm pretty sure that the problem isn't hardware. The laptop has XP and the desktop has 98SE. The WUSB11 software on my desktop is reading both the router signal and the internet link I have, but it says "You are connected to the access point, but the Internet cannot be found". I am supposed to go to to configure the router on my desktop, as I can on my laptop, but it will not let me reach that site. It just says that the server cannot be found. Is there anyway you guys can help me? I would really like to get this problem fixed... I've been without Internet at my house for about a month and it's starting to really bother me.

Hi everyone,

I recently switched my phone deal to one which included phone AND broadband rather than just phone. They had to send me a new username and password for my router which is an OfficeConnect ADSL Wireless 54 Mbps 11g firewall router. They also sent me a simple modem. In orer to connect through the router, I have to go to their webpage and type in a username and password, but on putting them in it doesn't work: I get to the 'configure' page and it won't let me past, as the next page says "Internet Explorer Cannot display this webpage."

I've tried my provider who insist the password is right, and it must be as I am currently connected to the internet via the modem they sent which requires the same new password. I just can't get passed configuring the router, which used to work perfectly. I have checked with my provider who says I am a PPPoE and VC-MUX and these are the only other settings I have to decide. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. With 2 kids in the house, we are finding it a struggle only having one computer which can connect to the internet.

Thanks so much for any help at all,

It also states for information about starting the WZC service, to see article 871122 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base on the microsoft.com web site.

I did that and was told to use the following instructions to start the service:

Click Start, click Run, type %SystemRoot%\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

I do all of that, and when I get there, it is already lsited as on "automatic."

I must do this every time I need to change my wireless conection.

Is there any help one out there that can point me in the right direction to correct this

I thank you well in advance for your help.

Hello to all,
I'm configuring my home wireless for the first time. I have bought ASUS wireless router RT-N10E

User manual is here:

The current setup at home is the following. I have ADSL modem which is set up in the router mode so I have ethernet cable which I plug to my notebook and IP address is assigned automatically and Internet works fine. There are no any setups.

Now according to the manual, this setup of wireless router should be fairly easy. Now network cable that was previously going to the notebook is plugged in to WAN input port on wireless router, and new ethernet cable is connected from one LAN port to notebook (just for the purpose of setup).
So, I use this quick install setup but at the first step: "Detecting connection status" fails so I need to skip to manual.

Can you assist me here? If everything is put on automatic it still doesnt work. I have put everything to factory settings and wait for your instrctions. I cannot understand why this auto detect QIS is not working and I'm not sure what to do manually.

I didn't try to set up all adresses manually. Right now this ADSL modem that was used to go to the Internet through ethernet cable have IP address, but this same address have also wireless router.
My friend told me that this doesn't matter since all I need is to use that ethernet cable from ADSL modem that at first was going to... Read more

Hello to the incredibly helpful people who may be reading my post!

I have:

1 X Netgear ADSL2+ Modem DM111P
1 X 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless 11g Cable/DSL Gateway WL-525

I have used the wireless device previously with an Alcatel ADSL Speed Touch Modem using PPPOE no problem. Now I have the Netgear modem and i'm stuck with PPPOA.

Internet solely through the Netgear modem and my laptop works fine. Now I want to plug the 3Com wireless router into the Netgear modem but it's not working.

I plug the cables in all ok. So that the Netgear ethernet port plugs into the 3Com Ethernet/Cable/DSL port and I connect wirelessly or cabely to the 3Com.

I'm forced to use PPPOA bridged to connect and I can see that the 3Com is allocated a public IP address from my ISP. So i'm wondering why I can't surf the net!?

So to be clear, I can see/access the 3Com from my laptop, the laptop is getting an IP address through the modem using PPPOA bridged, but its not routing through.

I've tried manually configuring DNS on my laptop, but no luck.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be most interested in reading them!

Hey all -- I'll try to be concise.

In the House, there is Spectrum internet which should be about 200 Mbps wired. There is a router and an access point. In the house there are several devices, both wired and wireless. Both types of connection approach 200 Mbps (for wireless, this is assuming you are within a reasonable radius of the AP). So far, so good.

But -- I live in the Apartment about 80-100 ft away, up a bit in elevation as well as on the second floor. There is something like a 10ft differential between our flat and the room in the House.

To get internet in our Apartment, I have an EnGenius ENH202 (which advertises speeds up to 300 Mbps) configured as an AP w/static IP blasting towards our window from the House. It is behind a window, so the signal must pass through two windows currently.

Internet access via EnGenius is both unstable and slow. I understand speeds will fall off, but I cannot get above 20 Mbps on any device and usually range from 7-13. As to stability, the internet drops out often, EnGenius disappears from list of WiFi network access points, etc. Interestingly, sometimes we can connect to the Spectrum 2G network more easily and reliably than EnGenius, though not always and not for long. EDIT: For example, the speed test just had EnGenius at 16 Mbps and Spectrum 2G at 33 (sudden, new high). I could handle the lower-than-advertised speeds (probably user error, I know), but the instability is killer.

- I am not particularly confident that I have... Read more

Hello, I've been searching all over for help with a problem I'm having and stumbled across this forum - really hope someone can help me!

I've just had a leased line installed to provide me with a high speed internet connection. It's a 100Mbps fibre pipe and am trying to integrate it with my existing network of 6 PCs and a printer. Previously, I had a 2 line bonded ADSL connection using a Comtrend 5631 router, which also acted as a DHCP server, allocating IPs for all the machines.

The hardware that has been installed with the new line is a Cisco 1941 router which is managed remotely, I have been provided with 5 IP addresses and it operates on a subnet of My original network runs on, with the router as What I want to do if possible is use my Comtrend router (or purchase a new one if I have to) the same way it has been used before, i.e. as the main hub which allocates the network addresses but have it connect to the internet via the new router (as the ADSL will soon be disconnected), so that all the machines are connected to the fibre line at high speed. How do I do this?

Thanks so much in advance


A:Configuring my network with the new fiber line

It sounds like what you will need to do is use the router in a "passive" mode. What i mean is simply keep your internal network as it is, but create a static route towards the new Cisco Router. The static route should probably be with a subnet mask of What this means is that anything destined to a destination the current router is unaware of, it passes it to the Cisco router which will then forward this onto the internet.

Does this make sense?

Everyone in our home has a personal laptop and our desktop is used any more. I wonder how I can configure the laptops to backup to the desk top. We use Windows7 on the laptops and XP on the desktop...
I need to know how to configure everything so everything backs up to the desktop. Any idears????

Thanks in advance


A:Configuring XP as a Back-up for Network Computers

The easy way - setup network share for each user on the "backup computer" - map a drive for each person to the share - and then use your back up software on the "backup computer" daily

POINT: they must save their files to the share for them to get backed up.

I will let someone else do the hard one.

Hi, hope someone can help!

I have a network card given to me by a friend. I need to install it in my pc which is simple enough.

However, how do I configure it once its physically in the pc? Also, does XP Home have generic network card drivers as I dont know what make the card is so have no idea of the drivers required.

Thanks in anticipation.

A:XP Home and configuring a network card

I'm using D-Link and Linksys cards in my PC's.
IIRC, D-Link for instance, specifically states to keep Windows out of the install process and to use the provided D-Link software.

I think you'll have better luck if you can get ahold of the software/drivers that came with the card.
If the CD is lost then I would go to the manufacturer's site and see what's available to D/L.
