Hi all,

I've got two PC's here, and DSL-504T router, and no idea how I can transfer files between the PC's, and I'm sure there must be a way!

Can anyone tell me what I've got to do to get them talking to each other?

ordinairily, with a router, this is decently easy. as long as your computers are set to DHCP for their ip addresses (default), their network settings are within each other's. there are more things to look for too here is a small checklist to go through.
1.for simplicity, they should be of the same workgroup.ex:workgroup or mshome .on winxp you check for this by >right click on my computer>properties>computer name

2.make sure you have a folder marked as shared.(xp sp2 has by default)

3.if you have any firewalls active, either create a new rule for them, or TEMPORARILY disable them. the latter i do for troubleshooting only.

4.now that this is done, make sure you have rebooted if you made any network settings changes, then check to see if you can see the other computers on your lan.
double click on my computer>my network places>view workgroup computers.

hope this helps, let us know how u made out
