I have two PCs and a media player with Wifi
I have a wireless modem and both the PC are connected to the net one on wired LAN and the other on wireless and the media player is also connected wireless
I have to make a home network so that files can be shared
I need step by step instructions
there is lack of information provided by you.
Please mention operating system and media player manufacturer and model.
just go to
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\HomeGroup
and click "Create Home group"
remember there are more than 1 file sharing options you need to check in windows 7
- Password protected sharing (your media player might have a default password - refer to the manual)
- Filesharing connections
- media streaming
- public folder sharing
- file and printer sharing
- network discovery
If its PC to PC only just check these things in network and sharing center you should be good.
Well good luck. You will learn a lot from our fellow frihosters
Home group can be created in other Windows versions
You will need to transfer your WI-FI connection into a Storage device (or something like that) so that you can put all the files you want in it and get it back from the other computer. There's enough software to do it well.
