Basic setup - USB WiFi on 2 PCs for Internet Sharing... how??? Help!
Sorry if this has been covered before - I've scanned through this NG and
can't see the answer.
I want to connect 2 PCs together for file sharing, printer sharing and
Internet Conection Sharing..
I have 2 PCs at home:
o XP Home (SP1) with an ADSL modem "dialup" connection.
I have bought two Asus USB WiFi (54MBS) adaptors which are installed on each
There is no router...
How should I configure the conection? I've tried various things, but so far
The ASUS software seems to want to install a "Soft AP" on the XP "server"
machine. With that configured, the Adhoc/Infrastructure options are greyed
and locked at Infrastructure. On the ME PC, I can find the network and
apparently connect, but there's nothing in Network Places and the Internet
Can someone give me an Idiot's Guide to setting up a network like this? Or
perhaps point me at a website which will help a WiFi virgin like me.
I'm now thinking I should scrap the Soft AP and use ad-hoc on both machines.
If I do that, can I get ICS to work?
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
