I recently purchased a Broadband Wireless router, this one to be exact. What I didn't realise was that this was not what I needed. I am wanting to use it for sharing files and sharing a dial up connection at home. I know, I must be crazy to buy a BROADBAND router to share a wireless connection, but it just didn't hit me that there was a difference in types of routers - I just didn't think it through. But, to my relief, someone told me I could get this to work, though.
I've tried to use the software that came with the router, but, of course, it was design to set up the router for a BROADBAND connection. So it looks like I'll have to bypass that software and just do it on my own.
I was wondering if some one could either refer me to a link that would tell me how to do this, or give me some steps on how to do this. I'm in relative sad shape compared to most of you when it comes to hardware, so I'm not really sure what other information to give you, so If I leave something out, just let me know.
Here's a few fact you might like to know:
I'm trying to network 3 computers; one laptop, 2 PC's. All running XP.
The 2 PC's will be using cables to connect to the router and the laptop will be the only wireless device in the network.
I hope I've provided a decent amount of information but if not just let me know.
Thanks a ton for your help (in advance),
