Install a network with livebox
  

I have 2 PC running XP Home, and a livebox pro. I would like to create a local network to share my hard drives, printers, etc..
Someone could help me because my first attempt was unsuccessful!

Thank you in advance.

Re: Install a network with livebox

With LB pro, you can connect your PC in 2 Ethernet?

Here's what to do on a router (the PA)
- Enable DHCP
- Give ranges of IP addresses used
- Give the subnet mask

Here's what to do on the PC
-give the same workgroup name.
-install-file sharing and printer.
- Share at least one folder on a PC (specify read-only or update)

the PA has a pro switch so you can connect at least 5 computers.it is already in dhcp has nothing else to put those IDs for "internet".Right-click your network connection (on your computers) and right click on the TCP / IP must be dynamic.Remember to remove all firewalls (like that of windows, norton or other).

If you can ping the livebox, you have a good connection. You may need to make sure DNS settings are correct and firewall is disable.To make sure that your Windows Firewall is disabled, go to Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services/Windows Firewall and disable it from there.
