I have a networking problem that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I think it is quite easy, but I just don't know what to do.
I live at a motel (my wife is the on-site manager). Her work PC (call it PC1) is plugged into the wall, which gives it access to shared documents (from the other office PCs) and internet access.
There is no port in the wall for my PC (call it PC2) to plug into, so we have a wireless router that we plug in between PC1 and the wall, of which PC2 then gets internet access.
The problem is that when we have this router between the wall (LAN) and PC1, PC1 loses access to shared docs, but still has internet access.
Basically my question is how do I maintain access to shared docs on PC1 to the other work PCs.
Hopefully this makes sense. If not, I've tried to show a "diagram" below.
Situation 1: Without Router
WALL (LAN) ----PLUGS INTO-----> PC1
In this situation, PC1 has access to shared docs & internet
Situation 2: With Router
WALL(LAN) -----PLUGS INTO-----> WIRELESS ROUTER --------> PC1
In this situation, PC1 has NO access to shared docs, but still has internet access.
Can anyone help at all please?? Please explain like I don't know a lot about networking!
