Can someone please assist me. I have been trying to share drives between my dekstop and laptop using a router. I have connected both PCs to the router and has made changes to the file sharing enability to both. However, when I changed the ip address to and respectively, the one using the ip add could not access internet. And if I set both to default networks, my laptop failed to see the shared drive. Help me please.

Try .3 instead of .1 and see if that works.

Thks. But it doesn't work either. Furthermore I am sharing the router amongst 3 computers; 2 dektop and 1 laptop.

Check and make sure they're also all set to the same Workgroup.
