How do i set a peer to peer network between my iMac and windows machines?

I want to set up a peer to peer network between my iMac and Windows based computers in my house.  I also want it to a wireless set up.  Mostly being done to share videos, pictures, and music. Any insight would be appreciated.

I'm trying to connect my MacBook Pro to Wifi using internet sharing
Why?
Just connect the MacBook to the same internet as your iMac.
MacBook > Wi-Fi router > Internet.
You are connected to the internet with your iMac.
iMac > Wi-Fi router > Internet
Why do you want to go MacBook (via Wi-Fi)  > iMac > Wi-Fi router > Internet?

    Sorry, but it is not possible to "extend" the Guest Network using either wireless or an Ethernet connection.

  • How to set up a home network between an iMac and Apple TV

    I have an iMac running Snow Leopard connected by Ethernet cable to the internet via a wireless-capable modem running at 5mbps.
    I want to network it to an Apple TV connected to my HDTV by an HDMI cable so I can run Netflix.  The TV is on the first floor at the back of the house.  The modem is on the third floor at the front of the house.  I estimate the distance between them to be about 65ft.  The set-up is such that it would be difficult to bring the two closer together.
    Could you please advise me the best way to set this up?  My concern is the distance from the modem to the Apple TV.  Would Airport Express used as an extender be needed and/or enough to link the two (this could be positioned approximately half-way)?  Or is there some other way to achieve the desired hook-up?
    I'm elderly and digitally challenged, so will need rather explicit step-by-step help !!!
    Many thanks.

    I have an iMac running Snow Leopard connected by Ethernet cable to the internet via a wireless-capable modem running at 5mbps.
    What is the make & model of this wireless-capable modem? If it is not an Apple product, then extending it with an AirPort Express (at least not by wireless) will not work.
    Assuming that it is not an Apple product, then the only other choice would be to connect the Apple TV by Ethernet. However, I can certainly understand if Ethernet is not desireable or practical ... so an alternative to that would be to use Powerline adapters. These adapters take advantage of your home's electrical circuit to create a pseudo Ethernet one. You would then need at least two of these adapters to be placed at the locations of the wireless modem and the Apple TV. Each adapter would be connected to an electrical wall outlet and a short Ethernet cable would run between the adapter and the device (modem & Apple TV) to complete the circuit.

  • How can I set up a wi-fi network, using one time capsule and two airport express

    how can I set up a wi-fi network, using one time capsule and two airport express ?
    The time capsule is near the Mac. ok
    The first Airport is on the corridor, ok, works well and the App on the iPad signals so, ok
    But when I plug the next Airport on another room nearby nothing happens, and signals disconected ....
    is the signal so weak that is not able to go to ono room to the other ?

    Well, even if you have the first express set up to extend the network, the second express can only extend from the TimeCapsule.
    Maybe you got walls of sheetrook in the way, or kitchen/bathroom tiles, etc, dampening the signal rapidly.

  • How do I set up timecapsule as a networked harddrive?

    How do I set ut timecapsule as a networked harddrive. I have used time capsule as wireless backup before, but not used is as a networked harddrive.
    Can someone please tell me how to set this up.
    Thanks!

    By default, the Time Capsule is a network hard drive.
    If you have the Time Capsule set up to connect to the network using wireless or Ethernet, then it is by default, already set up as a network hard drive.
    You can access the Time Capsule from your Mac by clicking anywhere on the open desktop to display the Finder menus at the top of the screen.
    Click the Go menu
    Click the Network icon
    Double click the Time Capsule drive to mount the drive on the Mac's desktop
    You can copy/paste or drag drop to the Time Capsule icon.

    To mount the AirPort Disk in Windows 7 or Vista:
    Open the Network browser by double-clicking Network on the Windows Desktop.
    The AirPort Extreme base station name should appear in the browswer.
    Double-click the name and you should get a login prompt.
    Now depending on how you set up disk access:
    In the Name field, either enter the user account name or for base station/disk access, leave this field blank.
    In the Password field, enter the base station, disk, or user account password.
    Select the volume(s) you want to mount, and then, click OK.

  • How can I set up an external monitor to extend my screen in windows 7 bootcamp?

    How can I set up an external monitor to extend my screen in windows 7 bootcamp?  I have updated bootcamp to the latest version.  The monitor I have works while I am using Mac OS X. While in bootcamp the monitor is dectected and I am able to select the settings and displays however the external monitor remains alseep.  I hooked it up using a mini display port to VGA adapter.  Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    On your Windows desktop right click and select Screen resolution from the menu. You should see a window like this:
    Make sure you select Extend and then set your resolutions for each monitor.
    If this does not work for you try asking on a Windows forum about extending displays to a second monitor.

  • When importing images in Pages, how do I set the default object placement to "stay on page" and "no text wrap"?

    when importing images in Pages, how do I set the default object placement to "stay on page" and "no text wrap"?

    Then use a Layout template.
    I am a designer and I use Word Processing templates with layout breaks and all the other tools available because Layout templates are just WP templates with a lot of options removed.
    Pages is not Indesign, but then Indesign is not Pages, …and Pages 5 is not Pages '09.
    Unless your flyers are for the Web, why are you using Pages at all?
    I am curious, what does your post have to do with the O.P.'s question? …and why are you posting it here?
