  1. Simple Question...

    This is just a simple problem that I just cant figure out. I attached a picture so I could explain better. The purpose is that I want to be able to share all my printers and also I want to be able to transfer files between the computers, so far I have been able to look from the 10.0.100.X network to the 10.0.10.X network but I cant seem to get it to work the other way.

    I am no master of networking but! This is kind of my special project, my family is going to be really glad, the thing that looks like a lightning thing means that its trough wireless, the reazon I dont use only ONE router is that the G router is mine and I do a lot of heavy transfers between my laptop and my desktop and when I get mad I want to be able to isolate their lan more easily. I hope someone can help me out here :grinthumb

    Thanks and just in case, I'm a newbie

    I don't know about the networking stuff, but I like the pictures of the PCs, laptops and so on, where did you get them?

    I Used Microsoft Visio, Trust me I'm super bad at drawing so you will probably make it better.

    Yeah its the Visio 2003 if you are online while using it then the program will use the internet connection to get the clip arts you search for.

    What are the TCP/IP configurations on the client computers? Are the subnet masks set right? You have to turn off all packet filtering on your local routers or explicitly enable Windows Networking ports.
