Hi,

Can someone help me out? I would like to share/tranfer files from a desktop
to a laptop. Both computers are running Windows XP.

I have a Netgear RP614 router and a Netgear FS605 switch. Can someone tell
me what I need and what to do to "network" the two computers?

Thanks,
Bob

I would drop teh Netgear Router myself. Seems they installa backdoor into
their routers that cannot be closed and is very easily accessible.

Kind of a broad statement IMO.

I couldn't google up anything relating to RP614 or FS605 having a
backdoor, where did you see that?

There is one in the WG602 (WLAN access point), unless it got fixed lately.

I had the article somewhere from another NG. Actually it was about a week
ago I read it. Don't remember the specific model numbers it pertained to
though. I use Cisco myself and haven't had to deal with Netgear since I was
contrating in Alaska.
