Hi all new to the MPC forum but I have been reading the mag for just over a year.
Ok here is the problem:
I am on a dish for my Internet connection so this is a tad different than the average broadband setup. I have my modem which connects to the netgear wireless router. From there I have a switch to connect teh rest of the compters 6 and climbing. Only one is connected via wireless. Yes I ran all the wire myself
. All but 2 are running XP pro/home the others are 98se(worry about them later). That leaves 4 computers to deal with. I have spent several months working on this (off and on) I can get 2 of them to connect to each other. They can share folders and the printer. However I don't want my son printing off that printer, I would like him to use the one connected to my PC. Now my PC is one that nobody can seem to connect to. I have tried everything I can think of to get this working. Reconfigured the network changed IP addy's gone through the troubleshooter at least a dozen times, turned firewalls off-on changed workgroups on all the PC's everything I could think of, STILL NOTHING WORKS!!!
Now I am not a total n00b to networking I have gone through the CCNA course and have helped set up other networks(mainly for LAN parties). When it comes to making my own work I have just had the hardest time gtting it all to work. Is there something that I might have overlooked about 100x's?
Please any help would be great!!!!
