I am not a techie so please bear with me if my terminology is a bit naff. I have two computers connected by cables to a router. I have run the file sharing wizard on both. It doesn't appear to have made any difference. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone tell me how I can access files from one computer to the other?
I'm sorry but natdoor is mistaken, you can definately run a full file and printer sharing network with a router as well as Internet access. click here and check out some of the articles for help on setting up a home network.
The most important things are to have the same Workgroup name on all computers and to set up file sharing on the drives or folders you want to be available to the other computer.
Sorry for seemingly deserting you dawnal, I got called away at short notice. natdoor is incorrect as Eric10 has said, he has also pointed you to a good link, if you have any problems, post back. It's best to have all firewalls turned off when initially setting up the network at a firewall can cause problems in the initial stages.
