Not to sure what you want to do; you have a Thomson TG585 wireless modem / router and you

can access the Internet wireless via your laptop, you now want to connect a computer via the

integrated 10/100Mb/s 4-port switch, to share files and printer via a local network between the

desktop and the laptop is that correct, what OS are the computers using both XP or XP and Vista

First you have to connect the desktop to port 1 on the router using a standard straight through

RJ45 Ethernet cable click here

You now have to check that the Lan card setting on the computer is correct

If any firewalls are installed on the PCs, uninstall it

This includes Zone Alarm, Sygate, Kerio, Norton Internet Security, Zero Knowledge Freedom,

Cisco VPN Client, F-Secure, McAfee Firewall, Trend Micro, Comodo, McFee

PC Tools Firewall Plus etc.

In many cases, disabling the firewall is not enough; you have to actually uninstall it.

Do not install or re-install the firewall until after you have the network functioning properly.

Web Browser Settings

How to Set Up Your Home Network

Choose a name for your network (often referred to as a workgroup).

Something descriptive is usually best, such as your family name or the name of your small


Right click on My Computer – Properties – Click Computer Name Tab –

Click the Change Button -You can Change the Computer name and the work group name

Each computer must have a difference name (Dad01, Son01, Mum01 etc) and the workgroup

name must be the same (usa_4004) on each computer

You'll also want to plan how your network will be configured.

At the bare minimum, a home network lets you print from any computer and access files from

other computers without leaving your chair.

Most, but not all, printers can be shared.

To find out if your printer can be shared, open Control Panel and select Printers.

Right-click your printer Icon, and choose Properties.

If there's a Shared tab in the dialog box that appears, click the tab and make sure the share option

is selected.

You're ready to share the printer.
