Windows 7: LAN Home Network with router + Wifi internet

LAN Home Network with router + Wifi internet

I have Windows 7 64bit, a Belkin router, and a Wifi usb card.

I have a Windows Xp computer networked and shared on the router.

I get my internet from the Wifi usb card.


I would like to use the internet off the wifi card, but also still connect to my network and get files from the XP computer.

(I would like to have the connections separate. One for Internet over Wifi. Lan for sharing files over home network.)

I have the two connections working just fine. and i can get internet...
But...

The LAN is a "public network" and I cant change it to a home network.
and i cant see the Xp computer or its files.


I would be grateful for any help.

Ok, your Windows 7 machine is using the USB wifi, and your XP is using the home wifi (ie through your router). I cannot see why your Windows 7 can't use both the USB wifi AND router wifi. Matter of fact it should work from connections point of view. I tried it on my eeepc, with a USB modem attached.

If you are just sharing files from your Windows 7 and Xp, you don't need to be on the internet. That said if both machine can see each other, everything you wanted should be fine. Just create shared folder to be shared between the machines, and surf the net from either. However why do u want to use the USB wifi for internet when you can use your router's?

Let me get this straight..

You are getting your Internet from a USB card.... Okay got that.

How are you getting your internet... Cable Modem, DSL, or Dial up modem?

May i get the make and model of your router as well pls.

Ok, so you are saying you cannot get your Windows 7 which is using the USB wifi, to connect to the internet?
