PostPosted: Fri Dec 22, 2006 4:31 pm    Post subject: wrt54g and rtp300. 2 PC, file and printer sharing don't work Reply with quote Back to top

Hi Everybody

I have a network with a wrt54g and a rtp300 with this topology http://vonage.nmhoy.net/tworouters.html Option2: Chained LAN. I would like to use the file and printer sharing between wired Lan1 and Wired Lan2 Pc-s.

I know it will be hard to do it, but I can't change the network topology and the whole wiring because of the location.

The primary router is the Linksys wrt54g, the Vonage is the rtp300.

Do you have any ideas how to enable the File and printer sharing???

It all depends on how your setup the ip addresses. So long as everything is under the same subnet i.e. 192.168.15.xxx for example for all the parties such as the rtp300 and your computers and only one of the routers is acting as the DHCP, then you should be all good.

That's how I do it with my setup. I have an rt31p2 and a dlink 524 wireless router. I disabled the wireless router's DHCP and so all ip addresses come out of 192.168.15.xxx and hence both my computers have this subnet. So now both can print and share files.

hope this helps.

I tried what you said. I put everything on the same network 192.168.4.xxx but there wasn't internet on LAN2 PC-s, and didn't see LAN1 and LAN2.

Okay, so you have verified that both the wrt54g and the rtp300 has 192.168.4.xxx as it's ip address?

You have also verified that all your computers when you type in ipconfig /all have the ip address 192.168.4.xxx?

Now you need to make sure that all the computers have the same workgroup name and then enable file and printer sharing under the network icon in your control panel. Remember, each computer will need a unique name but also need to all have same workgroup name.

For example, you might call the first computer's name C1; the second C2, etc. Just make sure the names are not the same.

then you also need to make sure that they have the same workgroup name such as homenet or something like that. Then you run through the wizard in the setup home network which is one of the options found in the network icon in your control panel.

what windows are you running? I am assuming xp?

I assume that you have correctly changed the ip addresses but now you actually need to run the wizard in your windows to enable it.

You will also have to enable file sharing on the appropriate folders in each computer. I don't recommend enabling everything b/c it would be vulnerable to hackers who can then check out those folders.

hope this helps, mundy5

Hi,


I tried you wrote, every computers are on the same lan, 192.168.4.xxx.
I setup the File and Printer sharing with the wizard on all computers.
But on LAN2 pc-s the internet is NOT available and this pc can't see others. I connected the LAN2 PC to Router1 and everything worked fine, but the router2 was not connected so there wasn't Voip.

I don't know what the problem is.

it could be that the internet conncetion firewall (icf) on that computer is interfering with your internet connection sharing in your network. you can try disabling this on that particular computer. i'm assuming you have some kind of firewall in your router, so no need to worry about turning it off for that computer.

Andras, you may want to check out this thread: http://www.vonage-forum.com/ftopic15982.html+mode .

Also, even though the experts frown on bridge mode as you'll see, it is simple and you may want to try it. Leave DHCP enabled on the primary router. Disable it on the RTP300. Run a cable from the primary router to a LAN port (not WAN port!) on the RTP300. Run another from a second LAN port on the RTP300 to the WAN port on the RTP300. That puts everything on the same subnet and leaves you with two LAN ports on the RTP300.

Its working.


I did what you wrote in your post (not on the link), and all the computers and routers work fine.

Voip - OK
Internet - OK
File and Printer sharing - OK


Thank you, Steve48
