    Set network for filesharing and different network (wifi) for internet


    Hello folks!
    I am having trouble in setting up my home network vs. my internet connection via WiFi.
    I have two PCs which I connected directly with a twisted pair LAN cable. Both PCs are also connected to my modem/wifi router via wifi antennas. My appartment is not suitable for cable connection to the router, so the wifi antennas are the only option to get internet access.
    Now, when both PCs are connected to the wireless network the connection between them is always handeled via the wireless network which runs effectively at around 100Mbps. That is of course much slower than the 1Gbit LAN connection via the cable.
    But here is my problem, as long as both PCs are connected via Wifi, they never use file sharing via the LAN connection where I could benefit of 100MB/s instead of 12MB/s transfer speed.
    The only solution is to turn off wifi but then I lose internet access on that PC.

    I hope someone can help me and tell me how to tell Windows, that I want to have filesharing ONLY via the LAN network and internet via WiFi.

    Thanks
    Peter

    Windows 10 Pro, 1909

  4. Set network for filesharing and different network (wifi) for internet

    Help needed with simple wired network

    Step one- Connect all PC's to router, and then the router to the modem. PC's go to router by the ports labeled "1-4" on the back of the router. WAN port goes to router. Power up all network equipment, and then systems.
    Step two- Power on the computer connected to port one. Go into router settings at 192.168.0.1 and configure internet, dyndns, firewall, etc.
    Step three- Go to "network set up wizard" in windows. (Network places- network set up wizard). The rest is self explanatory.
    Step four- right click on each drive and printer you want to share, and then configure sharing preferences. Should be easy enough.
    Step five- right click my computer, and the select "map network drive". Using the network address for each piece of hardware you shared, assign network drive letters.

    Congratulations, you have a fully operational network. Happy Gaming! *Toast :toast:
