    I'm running into some problems trying to network my 2 Computers to my Dell 2350 Wireless Router for Internet Connection and File sharing. Both computers are hardwired directly to the Wirelss Router, so there isn't actually any current Wireless connections.

    My setup is of the following fashion.

    Computer 1 (Dell XPS w/ Windows XP)-----.
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . [2350 Router]----[DSL Modem]-----
    Computer 2 (Compaq Presario w/ XP )-----`

    (Periods to the left of the router for spacing purposes only)

    What is working:
    The router does see both computers on the network if I do a Statistics/Diagnostic check.

    Computer 1 has no problem connecting to the internet.

    What isn't working:
    Computer 2 I can't seem to get connected to the internet.

    I can't seem to get file sharing to work. I did enable file sharing in the LAN connections and I did select the items that I actually wanted to share.

    I did set up the router so that it is a secure connection. Both LAN connections have the Firewall disabled.

    I have been through a plethora of tutorials with this very scenario and have tried doing everything that I have read.

    The last thing that I checked was to turn everything off for a bit, then I turned on the modem, the router, then PC 1, then PC 2 to make sure IP's were being assigned - which they were. Nevertheless I still can't seem to get this working.

    Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.

    I'm sharing files at this point - Woohoo. However the sharing of the internet connection is still stumping me - Anyone know any things that I should double-check?

    Once again any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
