    I have been trying to create a LAN in my home . I have a wireless router that my PC (win 98) is directly attached to and two notebooks (win 95) with cards in them. No problem using the internet on either of the notebooks and no problem accesing the notebooks from the PC. The problem is the notebooks can not access the PC for printing or file sharing which was the whole purpose of creating the network in the first place, Linksys told me they could not help and to try microsoft (yeah right try getting hold of them) Does my PC need to be wireless too? or should I be able to access it from the notebooks as I have it set up? SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!!

    It'll happen.
    Can you ping the PC from the notebooks?
    I'm assuming that 1) the service for MS file & print sharing is installed in the network panel and 2) you've checked "I want to share my files" and/or "I want to share my printer"
    If you can see and browse the two notebooks then you do not have an IP adressing problem.
    Let me know if you can ping. I'll check back.
