Problems setting up a network

  1. I am trying to set up a network between two computers

    I have a router, but 1 computer is on a wireless connection and the other is on a normal connection through a usb port.

    Im basically trying to setup a network to be able to share files between them

    Ive gone on both computers on gone through the network setup wizard but nothing seems to happen.

    Here is what ive done on both computers - it might help explain what I am doing wrong : -

    1) Went to network setup wizard
    2) For connection method I went to 'other' then clicked next
    3) Then clicked 'This computer connects directly to the internet or hub, other computers do the same'
    4) Ive then given both compters a name and description
    5) Then given both computers the same workgroup name 'HOME'
    6) Then it asks what I want to do - I click 'finish the wizard, I dont need to run the wizard on other computers

    is there something I am doing wrong? should I have created a network setup disc?

    i cant seem to find the files that are being shared on both computers

    Does the network have to be setup differently with the computer on the wireless connection?

    would much appreciate some help?

    make sure your network card drivers are installed.

    i got a new pc and was having problems networking.

    Later i realised i hadnt installed the network card drivers :blackeye:

    Did you do the network setup wizard on the other computer and set up all the Ip addresses, gateway address, dns address. You may also have to go to your routers manufactures website and set it up there. I have a router and thats what I had to go
