Networking questions: EarthLink DSL & SMC Barricade
ddutoit Nov-23-00 05:46 AM
I have EarhtLink DSL, and 2 PCs working with the SMC Barricade Router. We use Windows ME and Windows 98 on the two PC's respectively. Few networking questions:

1. How can I enable windows networking between the PCs? My roommate and I can play multiplayer games on our LAN etc., but I don't know how to set up networking so we can copy files, browse shared folders etc.

2. I seem to have a problem with MSN Gaming Zone... I can log in, but can't launch games. Could it be because the Barricade sets up a firewall?

1. You can do it by following the appropriate steps in http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/net2pc/intro.htm.

2. Yes. You can setup the Barricade for the MS Gaming zone by connecting to the Barricade with your browser (, logging on (admin is the default password), selecting Special AP, and selecting MSN Gaming Zone from the menu in Popular applications. Other games/applications can be setup in the Special applications as well. See your Barricade user manual on the Barricade CD and the game setup instructions. Larry

Thanks! I tried gaming zone again, works great. I'll try the networking after the holiday weekend and hopefully your advice will prove to be equally good in this case!
