  • networking...

    I recently setup a home wireless network with two computers. The main one is directly hooked into the router via ethernet, and the other one is by way of a USB network adapter. I have no experience with networking before, but I managed to set it up. The internet connection is being shared properly, and i can file share, and printer share fine.

    My problems lies within downloading and FTP. When I am downloading something sometimes it will just freeze and stop. I then have to try and re-download it. It will only go a certain amount or so, in which the amount varies, until it stops. Also, my FTP is a little bit screwy. I cannot change directories without having to disconnect, and it's giving me a tough time uploading.

    Unless a network automatically installs a firewall, i don't have one. Everything else concerning my internet connection seems ok. But i did not install a firewalls. So that cannot be the problem.

    Both the router and usb network adatper are 11MBPS, and 2.4 GHz. There must be something i am doing wrong...

    [edit]
    i recently tried FTP via explorer, and i have the same problem as with a FTP program. It doesn't let me change directories without logging back in. Then when i tried to upload a file in explorer, it said, "Calculating time to upload", and stayed there for about a minute. Then it came up with an error message saying that i don't have writes to create a folder on my own account! Which is obsurd. Thanx for any help!

    BTW, the reason why i think this is a problem with the network is because all these problems started when i first got the network setup...

        I am running Windows XP

        like i said, when i installed the network, i didn't install any firewalls, and i have never installed a firewall on this computer. I'm not sure if there is a firewall inside the router that is automatically there...

        I'm using Charter High Speed Broadband Cable internet access

        and i can directly connect with AIM, no problems there.
