lHi,
I've managed to get my desktop and wireless laptop to log on to the
new Wireless ADSL Modem/Router/Switch. Both can access the internet through
Router but can't get either to see each other to share files. Both are XP.
Desktop is crossover connection to Router while laptop is Wireless. What next
please.
TIA
J.J.

J.J.,
You should be using a straight through not crossover cable, from the router to your PC.

It's ethernet and it works so I might have described it wrongly in first
post, sorry.
Can you help?

one last question, though windows firewall is on, on both PC's, do I still
need to reload zonealarm to both and will I need to turn on encryption (WEP)
on the wireless connection?
TIA

You do not need zonealarm. Just use the Windows firewall.

As for WEP, yes, I would encourage you to enable it.
