I've been trying to get this working without any joy so its time to ask for help. My friend and I are both keen gamers and downloaders, we both have cable with ntl, i am on 1mbit service whilst hes on the 600k service. We live in the same street but there is a house in between us. I bought a wireless router and wireless network card hoping that we would be able to fileshare over a lan. I've connected my computer to the router using a wired connection, and i've given him the wireless network card so he can tune into the wireless router in my house, from his. I can set it up so that he shares my internet connection but thats not what we want - we both want to use our current connections to the internet but the router is still sharing mine to my other pc's in my house. He has not got a default gateway entered in his tcp/ip settings yet when im downloading and he is gaming he is getting high pings and vice versa. Does anyone know why this would be?
