I appologize for my poor english, I'm from the Netherlands
It's driving me crazy that I cannot find the help I need in all the available forums and Windows help-topics.
This is my setup:
1 PC with Windows XP
The PC is connected with the Router trough a LAN-cable.
The laptop connects with the router through a wireless connection.
The router is connected with the Internet through an ADSL-cable.
The laptop and the PC can connect with the internet without problems.
I want to connect the PC with the laptop so I can use the printer wich is connected to the PC from the laptop. I also want to be able to use file's on the other drive's.
I've tried to make a small office network, but then I have to choose to make the PC the central computer through which the laptop connects to the internet. But I don't want that, I want to use the internet from the laptop when the PC is shut off. Like it is now.
And then it ends. Nowhere can I find how to use the Router to connect the PC with the laptop without detouring the laptop.
Can anyone help me with this?
