need to connect to the server. but cannot do so. the laptop is dell which automatically connected to wireless belkin router.
Through this router i have connection to the wireless internet.
Is it possible to have a wireless and a local area network connection from one pc.
If i only use wireless how do i connect to the server software thereon and how do view other pcs on the network.
This problem also persists if i use a wired connection i cannot access the server.
when i try to ping the server ip it works. when i ping the server name nothing happens.
If i ipconfigure \all the only two devices that come up are my pc and wireless lan adpter wireless network connection.
Basically I cannot view available networks in browse when trying to map a network drive. the connection to the server does however connect when using the ip address. i.e \\192.168.2.10\s_drive
i do also need to connect to pastel on the server.
