Please How Do I Network 5 Computers by utimayor(m): 6:15pm On Jun 07, 2012
i just finished setting up a five computer workgroup, all i need now is how to network them to share files and use the same printer, i have tried what i learnt years ago but it seems not to be working, i am sure maybe missed something. Please can you guyz put me through with detailed steps to network the computers and the printer aswell.
Note: it is just a local network (if that is the right term) it doesnt connect to the internet.

young man, I can't be explaining the steps on how to do this here cos its all practical oriented and besides its time consuming.undecided Well ensure that all the computers are in the same work group and also make sure you use a straight through cable. is that clear ?

Connect all the network cables to the switch and your pc's or Vice versa, off-course you must crimp the cables undecided
you can use a dynamic ip address scheme or a static address. I recommend a static address.

Ping all the computers on your network to ensure connectivity i.e(ping 192.168.0.2 ) and all other IP addresses. Now share your printer and do a test print from all the systems... sorry i can't explain how to share your printer in details just right click on the printer and click on sharing and security. that's where i can stop. undecided

Since you already have some knowledge on networking according to the information you provided, I will advice you to signup for a refresher program in practical computer networking which i will be starting soon. A week practical training is OK for you..

I wrote this piece now, if there is any error i stand to be corrected...

For more info about the training send me a mail : life_style32@yahoo.com spammers stay off undecided

I agree with you. Computer networking is better done practically than explain in writing. Contact a network or computer engineer to help you.

What operating system are the computers running on? What exactly is the problem you are facing? Can the computers ping each other?
