Trying to Setup a wireless network at this office.

By m3svm ·
Hi you all... I'm having difficulties setting up this Network connection through my linkys router. Please HELP!!

There's a Network setup in this building and in the office downstairs they bought 3 new laptops and 2 desktops... So i had a Lynkis router that i set up and one desktop and 3 laptops work just fine, but the other laptop cant see neiter one of them and can't print as well, but before i set the router up it was printing just fine... so i guess there are 2 Networks and dont really know how to connect them... May be i should change some settings on the Router...
Please Help...
thanks!

But there are some unclear parts of your question.....

"3 laptops work just fine, but the other laptop cant see neiter one of them and can't print as well, but before i set the router up it was printing just fine... "

Are you saying one laptop can't see the other two laptops? But it can the server or get in the Internet? Were these PCs configured to the old network? Are both the server and the router sending out unique DHCP?

You say the laptop was printing before the router was installed. Was it connected to an ethernet cable and configured to print in the original network?

"so i guess there are 2 Networks and dont really know how to connect them... May be i should change some settings on the Router...
Please Help...
thanks!"

You can have two networks running, each machine just has to be configured to the proper domain and have the correct TCP/IP settings. And you can't have any conflicting DHCP going on.

Supposed to be a DESKTOP instead of a Laptop:)

I'm sorry, i think i was just typing to fast and made a mistake... 3 laptops are working just fine, but CAN NOT see Mapped drives from the original Network, and Router connected to one of the desktops and that one runs on it's own network i guess...But the other Desktop connected to the same router but can't get to the printer and for some reason Sits on the original Network. But i forgot to mention one thing, WE have 2 Linkys Routers running in this building... Original Network wires were coming downstairs from the Router Upstairs and then i installed the other Router downstairs, that's where all the problems began. I dont know if that makes sense, but if you could help that would be Awesome!!!

hmmm

I would say that the PCs in question are not configured properly to the new router, or the new router is not part of the old network.

In order to see the drives on the old network the router will have to be hooked into the old network physically.

If the printers are set up through a TCP/IP port, perhaps the path is not correctly reflecting the new router.

I would reinstall the printers that are not working, to the PCs. I would also make sure that the new router is part of the old network, and that the server can ping the router.

Got printer to work, but......

OK, Everything works inside my little Network group.. which is 2 desktops and 3 laptops. Everything is up and running, NOW my problem is, I Can NOt see an Old Network. I checked all the IPs and came to that My Network Runs on 192.168.4.1 IPaddress and an Old Network runs on 192.168.1.1, so I think that's the problem... and btw I have this new router connecting directly to the wall, which was an Old Network outlet.... Thanks for all your help Again!!!!
