Wireless Router Problems
Posted 06 May 2005 - 11:15 PM
Also, I have winxp on the wireless computer and winme on the wired one. I'd like to transfer about 1gb of files from the wireless onto the wired computer. How would I go about setting the 2 up so they talk through the router?

Assuming they are connected to same router, go to Control Panel > Network Connections, and set it up. On both PCs. Make sure you give same workgroup name on both PCs. On wireless PC, right click on folder with files, choose "Sharing and security" tab and enable sharign of this folder. Then go to My Network Places on wired PC and see folder with files from wireless there.
This way u can transfer unlimited amout of data.
P.S. When Win will ask u to create floppy (on network setup) - u dont need it.

U need FTP Server on one comp and FTP Client on other.
Server (trial 30 days):
On server, set up user, pass, home directory, and acess rights.
On client, connect to the IP of comp with server (enter IP where it says "yoursite.com") and enter login and pass)
P.S. U dont need "groups" feature.
Forgot...disable firewalls on both PCs for FTP to work.

|I've entered a username and password on both and it still aint' working. I'm gonna end up having to take the HD out of the one computer and copying them that way arn't I?|
If you're having that many problems, try transfer through MSN Messenger. If you're lucky it'll transfer through a direct connection and go very fast, if not, too bad.
