Hi, I'm new to this forum having discovered it yesterday while trawling the net for some help with my Sky BB. I have read with interest, and am glad to find I'm not the only one having problems - my web pages are increibly slow at opening and my connection drops frequently as well! I'm going to wait till the kids are inbed later and then have a try at unPNP and the other stuff which was mentioned - I can't remember any of it as it makes no sense to me at all
Anyway, what I'd really like to know is, is there any way of networking my laptop with my PC through the router so i can share files and the printer?
My laptop is connected wirelessly, but my PC is cabled to the router.
I would really appreciate your comments, thanks.

Welcome to the forum.
You need to enable file sharing. Make sure that your wireless security is bolted down. You may also need to configure your fire wall with an IP range. In addition, in the router config, you can allow certain MAC addresses, I sugest that you take a look on the bottom of your notebook and record that in the settings.
This may help a little http://wiki.ittoolbox.com/index.php/...haring_Network

Firstly, is the laptop a company laptop which you use on a company network away from home?? If so you will have problems networking it with your PC as the laptop is part of your company workgroap &/or domain.
If the laptop is your own & never connects to any other network the set up is fairly straightford by running the wireless network setup wizard in windows XP.
That can be found at:
Start / Control Panel / Wireless network setup wizard
The link that Cyrus gave looks really helpful & as madman says feel free to post for any help
