I'm a n00b looking for a simple solution to wiring a Netgear MR814 to two computers using no wireless connections. One desktop running XP Pro the other is a laptop with XP home. I just want to access files on the desktop from the laptop with no internet connection. What do I need to get this working?
Connect both computers with cat 5 cable. follow the setup instructions for the router and you should be networked.
If you have tried this then let us know what is/isnt working.
Also might run an ipconfig /all from a cmd box and post it here for us to see.
