Networking Vista & Win ME
I have just bought a Acer Aspire laptop (Vista) and I have a desktop running
Win Me. The laptop has WiFi built in. In the desktop I have a Realteck
RTL8319 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC which connects to my D-Link DSL-524T
Router to give me my internet connection. In the desktop I also have a
SMCWPCIT-G 108 Mbs Wireless PCI Adapter. When I installed the latter,
although the PCI card installed correctly (In win DM), the software would
not install, saying it was not compatible with Win Me. I have emailed SMC
support but no reply after 5 days yet.
Basically, I want my new laptop to access my desktop using the wireless card
in my desktop and to share the internet connection. I want to be able to
share/copy files to my new laptop from my Desktop. I am not trying to access
Vista from Me.
I have no idea how to set up the SMC Wireless Card using Win Me Networking.
I guess my problem is that the SMC software will not install
When this is done, will my laptop just "see" my desktop?
Any help setting up would be greatly appreciated.
