First of all I am not that good in describing things.

I have got a modem which is then connected to a pc and to 2 wireless routers. One router is a TP Link and the other is a C-Net. Then I have got a laptop connected wireless to the C-Net Router. I shared a folder on the pc and everything worked fine but when I connected my Laptop to the Tp link the share folder couldn't be found. Can anyone help me about this. If you need any more info I will be willing to help.

Thanks in advance
David

You can't have two routers on the same network and share files. That's because they each run DHCP to secure the traffic. The trick is to disable DHCP on one of the routers and to use the correct port when connecting them. See these instructions for a Netgear router (it will be similar for yours)

Good Luck
