Hello all,

I have a HP pc with win 7. I will be getting a Dell laptop with win 7 soon. I already have the wireless stuff hookes up because I now run a Dell lappy wireless.

My question to you: How do I connect a hard wired pc and wifi pc's on the samme network so I can share files, use the same Live email, etc.

Thank you in advance!

Thee Ox :thumbsup:

Just put them all in the same workgroup, following Win 7 instructions. The method of network connection is immaterial.

The Help function in Win 7 is a good guide.
