Hoping you guys can give me a hand here and tell me what im missing or doing wrong...
Basically, theres 4 of us in a house and were hoping we can share files with each other. Weve SKY broadband (UK ISP) and they give you a netgear wireless router.
as far as i know, theres 2 people on XP and 2 on vista, all connecting wirelessly to the wireless router for internet access
What I want to know is how to allow us all to share folders with each other...we can do the sharing part so the files are visible on our own machines. however, we cannot see each others machines.
What else on top of all joining the same workgroup do we need to do to be able to see each others shared folders?
Ive tried using the wireless network for home or small office set up wizard in XP but get to the stage asking me to shove a flash drive in the back on my router. there are no usb ports on my router so I cannot do it this way...Does this stop it being possible?
kinda outta ideas
oh and ive read the big long sticky in this forum but there were stages in it i seemed unable to complete
Any help is much appreciated
