  1. hi! three computers were using one wireless internet connection which is netgear, what will i do to have an access with the other computers because we are about to share files, and so it would be easy for us to access each files everytime we need it.
    i tried going to command prompt and put the ip address with http but it's not working.can you help me?

    so the network is
    wireless router --- two or more systems
    the router has it's own address (it will show up as the gateway address when you run ipconfig /all on any attached system).

    each client will have its own ip-address (also seen by ipconfig).

    Start with; Can all system use the browser and access
    If so, the tcp and wireless systems are all correct -- your issue is How do I enable Print/File sharing?

    google for XP Print file sharing and you'll find your answers.
