Yes... There are different ways to go about this.

1) Use one of your desktop machines as a file "server". Map network drives to each client machines.

2) Purchase a Wireless Storage Drive (http://www.nextag.co.uk/1tb-wireless-hard-...z0--search-html) and store all your media on there.

I personally use the first option. I have 1 desktop and 3 laptops at home. My desktop hosts all of my files, kirtan etc and is mapped to my Laptops.

Yeah, I use option 1 at home with my home theatre PC... just give it a particular name or assign a specific IP address on your home network through your router, and then access it either as a mapped drive or through a simple folder link eg: \\home-pc

How can i assign ip address on my home network pc.. Do i need to buy another router? or will it work with my dsl router :umm: ? my 2nd desktop need to be wired with 1st desktop ? or it will wireless if i use those wireless pc card/usb thingy to catch router signal.

Wow.. never heard of this one before... This will work only with my laptops (because of those 8XXXg internal wireless card)?

Find the folders u want to share. Right click > Properties > Click the Sharing Tab > Then choose a name for that folder.. I.E "Kirtan" etc.

Then take a not of the computer name and go to each client machine and go to My Computer > Tools > Map Network Drive > then type the following in the box \\COMPNAME\FOLDERNAME

where COMPNAME is the name of ur computer and FOLDERNAME is the name of the folder u are sharing.

dont need to touch IP addressing if u are using computer name as dhcp should be enabled.

if you need further help, add me on msn ajay696@hotmail.com and i will help you remotely. I do not use Windows Remote Access i use a dedicated site for Remote Access.

Option 2 u must have wireless on all machines unless you stick a ethernet cable from the Hard disk into ur router that way u dont need wireless on the desktops.

Good Luck Veer Ji

Setting up a network does not need to be difficult whatsoever...

That link describes how to assign IP addresses and subnet masks etc which personally is not necessary for people to know especially if they little knowledge about networks or computing in general. 99.9% of modems and routers all have DHCP as standard and usually come pre-configured. what DHCP means is that it automatically assigns an IP address to all machines attached to that network whether that be wired or wirelessly... and may i add that link only refers to machines being connected wired so would mainly apply in a business context.

That site also goes on to say that u have to setup a proxy server... u dont.

Simple.

Use ur current router and connect the two desktop wired. may wish to add a wireless network adapter to one of the desktops if u do not wish to keep it near the other desktop or with to feed a wire through your house.

Router will already be configured. Take the network key from the router and connect to the router (wirelessly).

You now have internet access.

Now do as i sed in the previous post with the network drives for file sharing.

Printer sharing:

go to the machine that has the printer attached to it (local machine) then right click on the printer in printers and faxes and press share. give it a name... summin simple, printer1 for example.

go to each of the other machines and do this:

start > control panel > printers and faxes > add network printer > \\COMPNAME\PRINTERNAME

COMPNAME is the machine that the printer is locally attached to if it is not a wireless printer. PRINTERNAMe being the printers name.

or if you have a printer that has a network card you can create a print server (PM and i will give instructions).

you are now sharing internet... files... and printers...

To put it simply, all you need to do is plug in (assuming all your computer are running windows) your "central server" computer directly into your router... usually wired is better but wireless will work fine as well.

Then set the name of the computer (right click "computer/my computer" and select properties, eg:"Media"). If you do this, you can access this computer from any other system by opening up a run box on any computer on the network and typing in \\"nameofcomputer" (eg: "\\Media"). Once it is opened up, you can make a shortcut or map a drive (in My computer, right click and select new network folder or map network drive) that'll shortcut to the computer. Just be sure to set the permissions of different folders on your system to allow sharing... that can be done by right clicking a folder, selecting properties and adjusting the sharing settings to allow for read/write access by other systems.

Its that easy!

    • This issue including the attempted ousting of Sikh farmers in UP and Kutch as well as the attacks on Sikhs in Kashmir valley will continue because we do not understand how ethnic politics works in India. Why is it that there are no such actions against other ethnic minorities, why aren't Bengalis also being ousted from the Terai in UP where they have settled in larger numbers than Sikhs? It is because the UP govt knows that there are significant number of UP labourers working in Kolkata and other cities in West Bengal and they will face retaliation if Bengalis are harmed in UP. Same is the case for other ethnic minorities. A few years ago the rape a Gujarati baby girl by a Bhaiya set off riots which led to the ouster of thousands of Bhaiyas from Gujarat. Even a fake video about the massacre of Rohingyas in Myanmar set off riots against people from the North Eastern States in South India by Muslims.  The reason these Sikhs in Shillong are being ousted is because we Sikhs and especially the Sikhs in Punjab now have the reputation that we will not retaliate against anything happening to Sikhs in the rest of India. This is why we are under attack in virtually every state. There were no attacks on Sikhs in the early 90s in Kashmir valley while the Kashmiri Pandits were forced out mainly because it suited Pakistan to keep the Khalistan movement on side as well as the fear that the Kharkoos were also capable of retaliation against Punjabi Muslims if Sikhs were targeted in Kashmir. Now that the movement is at a low ebb and previous Kashmiri murders of Sikhs such as at Chattisinghpora did not lead to any retaliation in Punjab then Pakistan sees nothing wrong in their proxies murdering Sikhs.  With regard to Shillong, there are hundreds of North Eastern students studying in Punjab universities and colleges. The majority of them belong to leading and influential families in the north east as well as Meghalaya. If they faced some heat in Punjab then you will see how quick the Meghalaya govt withdraws its action against the Sikhs of Shillong. The politics of retaliation works in India. If after Chattisingpora there had been retaliation against the Kashmiris in Punjab then the targeting of Sikhs would have ended. But the last time we understood the politics of retaliation was when Santji would threaten retaliation if Sikhs outside Punjab were harmed. This was the case when Sikhs were threatened in Rajasthan and nothing come of the threat to them showing how well such politics works.  Here are some of the north eastern student snowflakes in Punjab who while the Sikhs of Shillong were physically attacked last year were complaining about people in Punjab calling them Chinki or Corona!!  'We Are Indians, Not Chinese': Northeast Students Request People Not To Call Them ‘Coronavirus’ | Watch    
    • I might be being judgmental but the women in the photos don't look the 'religious' types. I think these 'toys' might promote a very soft form of 'cultural' faith. 
    • This is a great idea for our community to learn as well. Definitely not our gurus or known personalities but we can have a regular singh/singhi Sikh characters.
