I'm attempting to set up a small office network capable of file and printer sharing. The main computer will have (has) direct connection to a DSL modem that doubles as a Wireless router to the other PCs I wish to be on the network. Do I need additional software to get anything out of this network other than a shared internet connection via the DLS modem?
*edit* I sort of figured it out on my own. Even though the Windows Networking Wizard claims that you cannot network them together in that fashion, you can. You need to manually set the work-group name on each machine to match. Doing this, they should recognize each other if you access them through "my network places" / "workgroup computers".
Note: Some of the terms might not be exact, but the general idea remains the same. Feel free to ask question if you need additional help.
