Multiple Connections Issue
« on: March 30, 2010, 03:33:33 PM »
I have done this before, but I don't remember how I did it...


Desktop PC has no internet connection and is wired to both a Netgear router and also a Samsung printer

Laptop is connected to the internet by an on-board 3G modem and got wireless access to the router


The problem occurs when I connect the laptop to the wireless network, the 3G connection stops working and I got no internet connection until I disconnect from the wireless network


My question is: How do set it up so I can share documents and printer between the two computers and still being able to use the internet connection on the laptop?


Useful info:
Router: Netgear WNR1000v2 Wireless N 150
Laptop OS: Win7
3G connection gets configured by auto
Router and Desktop PC has got static IP Addresses

    If you connect motebook to WiFi then 3G stops, that's normal.
    It seems your WiFi from notebook does not work and I asume because static IP's using you have to setup static IP for notebook WiFi from the same netwrok as other static IP's are.

    The Wifi works as far as I can tell. Otherwise, it shouldn't be able to connect to the router

    Edit: After messing around some more with the settings, I can have both connected at the same time

    I will later setup file and printer sharing

    Due the fact I can't edit my previous posts, I'm posting a new reply even through I don't want to


    Anyhow, I have made something work, Both computers can fully access the router and they respond to ping

    I have added them to the same thing, "WORKGROUP" and it's set to be the "Work" network type


    But the computers can't find each other it seems, and I have no clue why

    Useful info (continued):
    Desktop PC OS: WinXP SP2

        Did you run the home network setup wizard?

          I guess you missed that, it was in the 4th reply


          By "they respond to ping" I mean both computers can ping each other successfully

            I have configured TCP/IP to use static addresses and other stuff like that, not sure what you mean

            And, what is netbeui ? - I don't think I have it installed or enabled
