Right ok i need a wee bit of help ;) . I have a new belking wireless g adsl router connected to one pc and a wireless card also belkin in my new pc. I have a usb thing i got with it but im not so bothered whith that.

I want to transfer files acroos wirelesly, easier than the cross connecting of HDS i do now its a real pain. But the wizard thing in xp is useless and i am stuck tried everything i can think off ;) . So i though i would ask some networking buffs for help.

I hate networking. :tazz:

If you want an easy way to transfer files that doesn't require a real network configuration, only a glutton for punishment enjoys setting up a network, go to my post in Software and download the FTP Shell client to one computer and the server to another and set them up. Port forward the server through the firewall, find the IP of the server computer, configure the server, very easy, just use Simple FTP for no password or security, and access it with the other computer. You can even use the Windows browser FTP as the client.

I am also trying to do this. Have XP machine wired into wireless router. And I want to be able to access files on the PC from my wireless laptop. I am not understanding the networking in that link.

Will the FTP open my PC for people outside my router? I dont want to get hacked
