Hello,

I have three Toshiba laptops (two XP and one Vista) that connect wirelessly to my Netgear router for internet access.

A couple of weeks ago I tried to set up a network so I could share files between the three and although all seemed well at first I started getting odd problems such as the Vista PC connecting to the router but not being able to reach the internet and one of the XP machines regularly disconnecting (but easily reconnecting).

Also, I think one of the machines may have had some settings left over from another network used at my previous home.

I've tried removing the changes I made but have got a bit lost. I'd really like to get back to square one and start trying to set up the network afresh - is there any information I could provide so that someone can tidy up whatever mess I've made?

Many thanks for any help.

I would recommend searching Google for third party software that will allow you to accomplish those tasks. I personally use Network Magic to automatically configure my computer for network access. There is also Linksys Easylink Advisor which can be downloaded free of charge.

Hope this helps,
Desion
