HI:
I have a DI-514 wireless router that also has several ethernet connections built into it. Now, I have connections for the internet working all around, but I want to set up file sharing and printer sharing too. Can I even do that using XP-PRO. I have two computers pugged into the DI-514 Ethernet ports and two set up on wireless, and I was thinking of setting up a third.
Now, when I go into the network wizards in XP there are ethernet as well as wireless solutions. I've tried both methods, and the best I could do was have one wireless see my master computer that is hooked up to the DI-514. If you could give me a roadmap on how this may work or even if it can wok I'd appreciate it.

One note, the wireless method suggested using a flash drive, but theDI-514 doesn't have a USB port on it.
Thanks:
Joshl

Hi:
I do understand that part, but two of the computers are on different floors and they are not wired to the ethernet but are wireless. Will the diagram still work. I'm getting thrown by wether or not to use wireless or other setup.

OK, I see, that is a long document. You covered all the bases. I'll give it a try.

the wireless and wired portions of the network should interact as long as everything is set up correctly...
