Need a little networking advice
Here's what I currently have:
Cable modem, connected to wireless router via Cat 5 cable; router connected to desktop computer running XP Pro SP3 via Cat 5 cable; printer connected to desktop computer via parallel port (printer has no wireless, USB, or Cat 5 capability);
Laptop computer running XP Pro SP3 that connects to the internet wirelessly via router above;
Desktop computer running 2000 Pro that connects to the internet wirelessly via router above;
The computers cannot talk to each other (i.e., there are no shared folders), and only the hard-wired desktop can see the printer.
Here's what I'd like to do (and what I could use your guidance on):
I would like all the computers to be able to use the printer;
I would like each computer to have a shared folder accessible to all 3 computers. I want no information shared other than what is put into these folders.
I think this is a fairly simple networking issue, but I'd like your advice (specific instructions, if possible) before I reconfigure anything.
Thanks for any and all help.
