After a HUGE amount of help from Caf4926, I now have a super fast and very healthy PC, and then help from the polite people from Linksys with my new router WRT54GL, I now have the following setup:
Wall connection to modem (for the entire apartment block) and then into the internet.
Linux-PC - OpenSuse 11.1 using KDE 4.2.4
Laptop - XP Pro
Printer - Xerox 8560MFP
I have now, as mentioned with all the help, a little home-office.
The router is plugged into the the wall-socket, the PC, laptop and printer are all plugged into the router (unless I am using the laptop on the balcony, the Caribbean evenings are very nice), and they all work well.
I would however like to get access to the laptop from my PC. I use the laptop when traveling here in the islands and would like to transfer data over to the PC when I get back.
I know it is possible using samba, which is installed on the PC. I don’t know how to enable/install/activate it, unfortunately. All I could find here were threads of people who were having problems with it.
Could someone please help me out with this.
