How to setup ad hoc wireless network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?amFyYXlh?=, Jul 31, 2004.

  1. Good morning

    I am trying to setup an ad-hoc wireless network. I can use 3 laptops for this wireless network. I already setup the wireless network adapters and these cards "see" a network but I can not ping any of laptop and they do not appear in my Network neighborhood

    Can someone tell me how to set up an ad-hoc wireless network? Why I can not ping the wireless cards of these laptops?

    Thanks a lot in advance

  2. Hi Jaraya,

    If you are unable to ping the laptops in a wireless network, then make sure to have disabled the filrewall in all laptops. Also, check out the below site to learn more about adhoc wireless network:
