Hi

I have recently installed Win2k on my laptop & have tried to network via wireless G PCMIA card in order to share a printer & files with my desktop (Win XP). I have not found any resources on the web that help.

The laptop detects it as LAN connection 2 & when I try to enable the sharing tick box I am told "please ensure that the LAN adaptor is connected before enabling connection sharing." This is as far as I have got. Any help much appreciated.

I should also add I have never used Win2k before only XP.

To be more specific & update this question, I now have all the necessarily steps outlined thanks to the Microsoft Networking Guide:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en

However, one hitch, when trying to join a workgroup on my laptop (2k) I am told "...you must install networking before you can change this computers domain membership."

I have installed Networking Services & Other Network File and Print Services from install CD but this did not seem to solve the problem.

Please Help!!!!

:thumbsup:

EDIT: The actual Domain & Workgroup boxes are greyed out & unalterable as is the Network ID Wizard.

Well as a friend pointed out it's jst a case of installing MS Client. That simple. The two computers can detect each other now.
