Hi Guys,

I think I've already set up a network with my two desktop PC's. They both have D-link wireless PCI cards in them and access a router (d-link) connected to my modem (d-link). Both can connect to the net fine, no problems there, but I'm not sure how to configure them so that I can share files and printer.

One is running xp home and the other 98se. I'm guessing it shouldn't be too hard but just not sure of the steps to take. Any help would be awesome

Cheers

Marc

Hello space_cow_boy and welcome to G2G, :whistling:

I would reccomend that you first upgrade the other computer to Windows Xp also... or you are in for a hard road to completing you file and print share. :blink:

The tutorials Detailed here (Post 5 & 6) are for all operating systems on all PC's to be windows XP, as it gets very difficult to try and explain how to share on cross Platforms.

If upgrading is not an option then I would reccomend searching this site for more help.


PS.... Like the Name also :help:

Thanks for your help
