Wired / Wireless Networking

Postby LaurenceCook » Tue May 15, 2007 6:49 am

I have a small office network, one desktop and two laptops. We are in a network with a BT Business hub (ADSL modem/router) and can all see the Internet and use e-mail. However, I am trying to set up a local network and have a strange (to me) problem. The two laptops cannot see each other or the network printer when connected with wire. However, wirelessly they can see each other's shared folders and the network printer. The desktop can see both laptops when they are wireless, but not when wired. We are all running WinXP, all Dell systems (Lat D610, Lat D620, Dim 5150). I have set the TCP/IP properties to enable NetBIOS under Wins for both wired and wireless network connection.

Any assistance gratefully received.

Can you ping each other by IP when using wired.

Disable firewall or any security software on all computer for a test. Then ping each other by IP. Please post back with the result.

By the way, when we created this forums, we tested some pop-up ads. We don't like them and tried to disable. But we had some difficulties to find one of them. I just re-do every thing and hopefully no pop-up ads any more.

OK, will do. May be a few days as I don't commute there on a daily basis.

No pop-up ads this time.
