I'm having problems -I want 2 PCs to share printer files and internet connection. I just don't know enough about it to make it work.
We are in a very rural location and only have slow dial up internet. I need to be able to use the internt on either PC. We have one laptop with modem already connected to the internet and a new PC with a network card. The network cable is connecting them. If I run the network set up wizard and I am able to share files & the printer, but the internet is only available on the laptop, and I have to run the set up wizard every time I start up or the laptop thinks it's not the host PC?!
I'm baffled - I'm sure there must be a simple explanation, but I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. What must I do to meake them share everything permanently? Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks very much for the link. I know dial up is slow, but I have achieved an internet connection on the client PC on a few occasions but I can't save it from one day to the next! I've tried so many different things I don't know which configeration worked!? I know it can work, I just don't know how to make it permanent. I bought the new PC assuming it would have a modem so the only way to connect to the internet is throught the laptop. :-(
