Help with home network!

Post by djray » Mon Jan 01, 2007 9:34 pm

so i just bought a wireless router and a wireless usb adapter and i'm going to setup a small wireless network in the house for the first time...

before i start reading the instructions and whatnot, just thought i'd get a quick 411 from you guys (granted i'm not a hardware person)!

i don't have high-speed, so i just want to setup my network to share only disk drives and maybe a printer... NO NET ACCESS!

do i have to do anything "special" to bypass the net configuration?

thanks in advance!

When running the Network Setup Wizard in Windows XP, you have the ability to choose an option stating that the computer does not have an internet connection.

"Other ---> This computer belongs to a network that does not have an Internet connection."

Note: I haven't actually ever selected this option myself, as I do share an internet connection over the network.
