Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Vista and xp network

\015 I have a hardwired windows xp network that I would like to wirelessly connect two windows vista laptops to. I am using a 2wire home portal that has a wireless signal that I connect to the internet through. Is there any way to make this network work so I can file share and print share?\015

  1. All computers should have installed and enabled file and printer sharing, which you can see and change in the properties of the network connection.
  2. \015\012
  3. All computers should have enabled file and printer sharing as an exception for the Windows firewall.
  4. \015\012
  5. Sometimes you need to install the IPX protocol on the network connection.
