Networking How-To

OK guys I have never networked before but have a few questions.

I have this laptop, its on a wireless connection OK, but i dont know how to network it to the desktop to share files (and printer).

Any of you know how about to do this?

That will get you started. Its a good idea to password protect your shares expecially if you dont lock down your router to keep those shares internal only.

Well I tried it, shared 2 folders on the desktop, and they dont appear in shared things on the laptop.

What did I do wrong? I ran the wizard... on both computers. File and printer sharing is on.

I'll second FishFreek's comment about security. Mostly because it can't be stressed enough. Be sure to password protect your shares AND enable the security on your wireless router.

I have two PC's and a laptop networked. Since I'm not home to recall how it looks, I will just go from memory:

1. The main PC where the printer was installed should serve as the host. Make sure you enter the name of the host the same way when using the wizard.

2. The shared folders and Printer should be listed in the share folder.

I follwoed the Network Setup Wizard. It told me to run the Wireless Wizard, and the Network Setup Wizard on both.

I did. I shared two folders on the desktop, and cant see them in the laptop anywhere.....

You have to browse the network neighborhood to see the shares.

I see the folder now, but it says Permission denied, Path Not found.

Ideas?
