Wireless router allow for moving of files?

Does having two pc's connected via wireless router allow you to move the files from one pc to another? Not just share, buy actually move and store on the other pc.

Thanks.

Yes it does, you can do pretty much anything via wireless that you can do via wired CAT5.

You didn't ask how to set up file sharing, but the way you asked your question suggests you might want to know. On a Windows system, type 'file sharing' as search keywords in the system help you can find in the start menu to get instructions. If you're replacing an existing router, you shouldn't have to do anything for the new one to support file sharing the way the old one does.

Yes, I want to do both.

I have an older pc that doesn't support pc to pc file transfer. I purchased a wireless router that I'm going to be setting up to do this, as well as converting my TIVO from dialup to wireless.

Thanks.

This statement makes no sense.

ALL PCs support pc to pc file transfer. All you need to do is to connect them with something. It could be a network cable between two network adapters, a serial cable between two serial adapters, a parallel cable between two parallel adapters, or a variety of other means.

In your case you are using a wireless network as the medium for the transfer.

This one doesn't and I'm not spending another dime on it anyway.

All my PCs did, back to DOS./Win3.1

Supposing your PCs are networked, and you have a modern OS, nothing is stopping you from sharing files, if you know what you are doing at least.

I guess if I wanted to spend the money on all the necessary adapters it could. But the question that was asked was answered in the 2nd post.
