Printer sharing on wireless router

  Potty Head 23:39 01 Jun 2005

I have just installed a 3com wireless adsl router, to which is connected xp pro desktop and win 2000 pro laptop. Both can access the broadband but I can't seem to work out how to setup the local network in win 2000.
Has anyone any ideas?

Run network wizard in XP Pro mchine make floppy when prompted then run it on Win 2000 machine to configure it.

Strawballs, that won't work mate... 2000 doesn't support it naturally....

Potty Head, right click the Network Connection in 2000 > Properties and check that Client for Microsoft Windows is installed.

Thanks for that Selfbuild I was only guessing as I have had very little experience of Win 2000 except the fact that we use it at work but not having administrators privliges I cannot do anything.
