ad hoc Wireless Network workgroup

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SkVH?=, Jun 23, 2005.

  1. I am attempting to wirelessly connect my two WiFi laptops (both with XP).
    I've run Wireless Network Setup Wizard and have Status: "connected", Signal
    Strength: "excellent" on each unit.
    Network Setup Wizard has been run on both units with a dial up Internet
    connection to one laptop and the other told to connect through the first.
    Windows Firewall has all the exceptions allowed.
    Problem: Only the resident computer shows up in the workgroup on each unit.
    Consequently, I can't access either computer over the Wireless Network, and
    can't share files or the Internet.

    What must I do to solve this problem?

  2. I now have the two laptops talking wirelessly. I had to disable WEP data
    encryption. It was asking for a network key and I didn't have one. I tried to
    enter one but, it didn't seem to work. Anyway, I don't need the security as I
    live miles from any main roads or people.
