I am completely new to the networking and have been reading this forum for a week but unable to work with my problem out. Iíve recognize that this is most frequently basic questions but the total learning curve is testing me out. I have just recently purchased a new PC and the Old PC which is still good and also works fine so that I would like to the network even if for short time for moving large files over.
Both PC's are running XP Home in SP3. I also have a Speed stream 4200 Modem with a Belkin Wireless N Router which is connected to it and even to new PC with the Ethernet Cable. I have also added a new Netgear Wireless G USB Adaptor to my Old PC. Wherein both are been connected to the net and are also working fine. Also have purchased a crossover cable and I also made an attempt for connecting the old PC to Belkin Router and it was successful - still able to receive the net on my old PC so that the whole thing seems to be ok there.
I have a Trend Micro which is a trail version on my new PC - at least for a short time and AVG Internet Security on my old PC. On the Trend Network page Iím only able to see my new PC. I can also log into Belkin Router as well as can see both the PC's. Which are connected at times are PS3 and an iPod to it. While I had the crossover being connected and can see only the 2 entries on the Belkin for old PC. Moreover, no matter in all above the original has indented to network with 2 via wireless and or crossover which I cannot locate it either from the other PC. When I go to My Network Places and select View Workgroup Computers it says that I do not have any access. Apparently I have done something wrong in it. I also think that it may have something to do with the Access Point but not sure about it.
How do I get setup?
