I want to put some files from one computer to another through my router (both computers are connected to the router). I really am lost and have no idea how to do this. I tried setting up a network with my computers, but it said i needed some discs or the windows disc which I don't have. So can anyone help me out please?

I'm using a linksys wireless router, and I don't know if this is a problem or not, but I'm trying to do this with one computer running windows xp SP2 and a computer running windows 98.

Hi Stirling, just so I have this correct....you want to trnsfer files from one pc (XP) to the other (98). You have to set up file sharing through the control panel. Do you have any OS disks?
Try this link for 98 file sharing. http://www.wellesley.edu/Computing/FileSha...ws/win98me.html

Asuming you want to setup a netwok connection go to (XP pc) >control panel>network connections>setup a home or office network> and follow the prompts, now when it comes to create a network start disk because you are using 98 insert a floppy disk and copy the files to it.
Now insert the floppy into the 98 PC, click the start button, choose run and type a:setup click ok then the network setup wizard should eppear. See how you go with that then we can move on and share a folder ect.

Ya, I saw that too, but my problem is I don't have a floppy drive in my XP system. I guess I'll just take the floppy drive from the 98 system and put it in, then put it back when I'm done. Thanks for the help!

Before you start swaping drives we can go another way. On your 98 pc go to control panel>network>configuration>file and print sharing and follow the prompts. Once done you will need to write down the name of your pc if you dont know it under identifacation.
