first time user of this site so apologies if some info missing. also, just a normal user so some technical terms might be wrong ... apologies if they are !
i am using pc's with windows 10 and the issue i have concerns my home network.
i have this set up by simply allowing access to folders to other computers connected to the network (not via homegroup which never worked when i tried to set it up some years ago).
i use one of the computers to stock all my shared files (music, films, work files, etc.) and would like to have this computer connected to the internet via ethernet. this would help when transferring large files from external sites.
unfortunately, when i use the ethernet connection to the router on this computer, the other computers are unable to connect (one is connected to the router via wifi and the other via ethernet). however, if i switch the main computer to wifi connectivity, no problem and the computer is visible and file sharing available to the two other computers.
is this something that anyone has come accross and can help me with ?
any help very much appreciated !
p.s. would a screengrab of the ipconfig settings when connected via ethernet and wifi be of any use ? i can post if ever.
