    newbie networking


    I just recently got a router so that my computers could share the same broadband. Can someone tell me how do I have one computer reading files from my other computer? On computer is on windows XP and the other is windows 98.

    right-click on the folder, share... where is your problem? and where is the connection to the router? is it between your machines?

    Router connection


    The router was originally configure to allow PC's to share broadband connection. Everything is connected to the router.

    so, you did:
    - setup the IPs to be in the same subnet
    - both can ping the router
    - they can ping each other
    - see each other in the "network neighborhood"
    - you are sharing a folder

    ... and you canīt get files to transfer?

    tell us how far you got in this chain ...
