K I got a router from here: http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...827&catid=19994
Then I tried to set it up according to the instructions given in the booklet... and no luck... I have everything connected to the computer (non-wireless) and the computer is connecting to the net fine... but the laptop (which is wireless) doesn't recognize any networks... now the router card for the laptop is (sry can't paste screeny but here's the info)
"The network connections listed below are disconnected. Plug in your network cables or otherwise connect your network hardware and then click next.
CHECK BOX (not selected): ignore disconnected network hardware
Wireless network connection: Broadcom 802.11b/g wlan
Local Area Connection: realtekRTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
I created a new network on the laptop and made it all manual and added the same SSID and encryption (it's using WEB I believe)
Then I tried this:
went in here and....
added the information according to the info they gave on the D-Link site... had the laptop get the same info... except for the last digit of the IP address... then well not only did the laptop not work but this computer couldn't connect to the internet anymore... so I changed it back to automatic
BTW I want the two computers to be able to share content and not just connection.... so.... what then?
