Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
I have just got a wireless router and set it up for wireless ...no worries (WHooHOO!).
I want to set up a home network with my desktop PC (always connencted to the router via LAN) and my laptop (maybe via wireless or via wired LAN).
Bottom line is that I want to save a load of files from my desk top to me laptop before I fresh install windows in to the desktop.
I run on XP and have tried busking via some of the 'control panel' menus but got no where.

It is strongly recommended by All router suppliers that you use a physically connected cable
to the Router via a Ethernet RJ45 cable for router setup.
Using a wireless connected computer for setup is Not recommended to access router setup at any time.

Remove Telephone from wall jack if install
Plug-in the 2-way filter that came with Modem/Router
Connect Telephone Cable that came in the box to the ASDL/DSL Socket on Filter and to the ASDL socket on the Router
If you had a Telephone connected to the wall jack before, plug the phone into the socket on the filter mark Phone
If you have any Phone extensions, Fax Machine, Answering Machine, etc, an ADSL filter must be installed on each wall jack
