Hi to all here,
I am a singnet mIo home user, using the modem cum router provided by singnet; white coloured mIo box (2wire modem).
I have a desktop and a laptop both connected to this router. The desktop is connected via ethernet cable while laptop is via wireless. Both runs on Windows Vista with sp1.
The problem is that even though the 2wire home portal shows both my desktop and laptop under HOME NETWORK so by right they are already on LAN? However when i tried running games such as CS1.6 or L4D, i am unable to detect the server be it my desktop or laptop is the server. I am also unable to share files or printer as attempts to set them up are futile.
I have tried connect the desktop using wireless to the modem too, also to no avail. I tried using the Windows Vista wizard to set up network and i got a message saying unable to configure devices and i must do it manually.
Please help me here, what should i do to get both my desktop and laptop on LAN? I didnt encounter this problem when i was using the Linksys router provided by Starhub years ago. Thanks in advance!
