Hi, probably someone can tell me how stupid I am but...
I have a Sony Vaio desktop connected to the interne using virgin net broadband by wired modem. My hubby bought me a wireless enabled Packard Bell lap top and I have bought a D link router and usb wireless dongle. using the Dongle on the desktop I have succesfully connected to the internet from both computers.
Now i am trying to network the computers together so I can transfer files but I can't get either pc to recognise the other. What a i doing wrong?
Don't know about the ping because I don't know the IP addresses but no nothing in my network places - first place Ilooked. When I did the wizzard it had the names of both computers at the end as though it worked but can't find em?
I'll find the IP address tomorrow (out tonight) but as far as the fire walls are concerned I run zone alarm on the desk top and the lap top camewith Norton. I turned both off whilst I was setting up incase it blocked the connection.
