Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium, 2.16GHz/2GB
Hi guys..I have another computer with Win Me...In this old Pc I do have the following network Cards:
- Usb Newtwork Belkin Adapter

- Realtek RTL8139/810X Family PCI Fast Ethernet Nic

-Remote dispositive VPN Support

-Winbond Infrared Controller (DMA)

-Ti Usb Remote NDIS Network device

My 2 computers use the Belkin Router for the wireless Internet Connetion" Does It means they share the internet Connection?"

Which of my Network Cards in the old Computer may I use for WLAN?

Realtek May be?

2nd question: What VPN is? Can I use it to create a WLAN between my 2 home computers?...Well thanx since now for ur time, waiting ur reply...bye

"Does It means they share the internet Connection?"

You only have one internet connection right? So yes they share the connection via the router.

If you want the me computer to connect wirelessly disable all those other devices except the belkin usb wireless.

Read the router manual to setup the wireless [you will need a wired connection to the router to do this].

Hi Wanderer thanx for ur time.
Yes I do have only 1 internet connection. I obviously share only that connection via Router. I obviously didn't explain myself clearly. What I meant is that both computers have an indipendent connection...ok I try to explain it better...I don't need that, the other computer is connected to the internet in order to have an internet connection with any of my computers. The reason of this question is that when I set up my Lan on the ME Computer I picked the option that says" no shared internet connection". The result is that both computers can see eachother, while only windows Vista Computer can get access in win Me computer, the other way around doesn't work. I turned on all the sharing files in windows vista "by sharing center and also the individual folders", I organized both computers with the same Workgroup name, and windows access has same username and passwords in both computers. I also gave permissions in the shared folders of windows vista "everyone has full access"....But can't get any access in windows Vista...I am always prompted with a IPC$ password that I don't know.Anyway I thought that the reason of my Lan malfunctioning is due to the inizial configuration of my network in Win Me...If u have any advice it'd be very appreciated.

2nd point. In my origial post I also mentioned VPN connection...The simple reason is that I am trying to get access to my windows Vista in another way...But I am not computer Literate and I am not even sure if VPN is supposed to be used via router...Anyway if you know about VPN please illuminate me...tell me what it is and when anybody is supposed to use it and how...well thanx again 4 ur time...bye Angelo!!!!!

PS: I'd appreciate anybody help :)

It is the windows vista firewall preventing vista access from me. Make sure it is configured to trust the me machine.

vpn won't do anything for you

hi wanderer no can't be that, in fact Windows vista firewall is turned off since I use Norton firewall...In norton my other computer has full trust, so can't be a firewall problem.

Sorry for the stupid question but as I said I am not computer literate...I just went in my router page and I set up my router as "access point"..just checking if it 'd change the way nothing changed so far

Anyway I always thought that the router was an access point, so why that option to use my router as access point??

Well if u know why, let me know, I am curios...
ty again

OK if its not the windows firewall then its the Norton firewall. Properly configure it to allow ME's access.

Usually configuring as an access point stops it from being a router and doing nat. If everything is the same you must not have saved the settings [whew!]. I would suggest not messing with your router since it has NOTHING to do with lan interaction between two pcs.
