I have an android device (in my house, downstairs) that can connect to my Windows 7 share without problems through the Wifi signal of my router upstairs. Problem is, that is a pretty weak signal. I have a better reception of my Wifi signal of the router downstairs, obviously. The problem is, then my android device cannot find my Windows 7 share. Most likely due to the fact that my Windows 7 pc is connected (wired) to the Wifi router upstairs. The Wifi router upstairs is connected to the Wifi router downstairs (also wired). What do I do so I can access the share through the downstairs router?
I'm no network expert obviously. I tried forwarding ports 137-139 & 445 in my router upstairs and entered the IP of my Windows 7 pc. Did the same from my Wifi router downstairs to my Wifi router upstairs but I figured I had no idea what I'm doing :-) Don't even know if port forwarding is the way to go or if I should have forwarded the ports the other way around. So, please, tell me, what do I do? Thanks!
