This is my deal......

I have a Cable modem going into a Linksys router which goes to a Netgear switch and to a Belkin wireless router.

Everything works as far as internet sharing......my PC hooked up to the wireless router connects to the internet and the PC's coming from the Linksys router and switch connect to the internet so that all good.

Question 1: I want to share files etc between my PCs but the PC's on the Router and Switch can't see the PC hardwired to the Belkin Wireless router. They are all using the "Workgroup" name.

Question 2: Even the PC's which can see themselves when trying to share info. are being asked for a "User Name" and "Password." What "User name" and "Password's" are those. I never set up any passwords on my PC. When my PC's turn on they go right into windows w/o having to type any passwords.

** One of the PC's is using Vista ... the others are using XP Prof.

Any help or links to how to configure my system?

Thanks,

What IP addresses are the computers getting when connected to each stage of the network? Start>run>cmd>ipconfig to find out.

Run network setup wizard, that will get rid of the usernames and passwords.
