  1. Hey All,

    I new to networking so forgive me in advance. I have a linksys wireless router with 3 PC total connected for the internet. I would also like to shave data from each machine I have shared the drives but still can not see the other PC's. All are running windows Xp (home). An all can surf. Is there something I am missing???

    Thanks

    you need to create user accounts on all 3 pc for the others( right click my computer manage, user accounts)
    join all 3 to same work group, and allow sharing on drives...you have the hard part sorted getting all 3 on the internet
