Where do I start?
Trying to set up a wireless home network so that I can share files and the one printer we have.
I think I may need additional hardware but, I'm not sure if I'm missing something.
Heres what I've got
Main PC (in upstairs bedroom/study) hard wired into Belkin 802.11g Cable Wireless router. Not sure what wifi kit this pc has built into it. How do I check without opening it? My printer is hard wired to this pc.
PC in kitchen. Sony VGC V2M (bought for looks rather than performance!) Also got a wireless Lan converter with this.
Both pcs can access the internet as I figured out how each could hook up to the router, one being hard wired and the other using the wireless lan converter.
Xbox 360 uses the Belkin to access the internet as well.
What I want to do is create a wireless network to share the files on both pcs and transfer files to and from each. Also would like the PC in kitchen to be able to print stuff to the printer (am I correct in my understanding that the Main PC has to be switched on to do this?)
About to replace printer (its an all in one) and was contemplating a wireless one. Any thoughts?
All help gratefully received:-D
My head hurts:?
