    How can I send a file from one computer to the other using Linksys WRT54G router? They are both hard wired to router.

    Make sure both machines has File Sharing enabled.

    Then in Network Places / Network Neighbourhood, you should see the other computer. Open that up and then drag the files there for copying.

    The file you are sharing must be either put into a shared folder or marked for sharing (right click on folder and click on the menu option 'Sharing and Security' , then follow directions).

    Both computers must be able to see each other in My Network Places (View Workgroup Computers in menu on left of screen).
