Laptops connected wirelessly

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?UGVuZm9sZA==?=, Dec 1, 2005.

  1. I have 2 Dell laptops that i am trying to connect together. I have setup an
    adhoc network which appears to work )i get a message telling me the nextwork
    is connected) I have created a shared folder on one of the laptops which i
    would like accessible from the other.
    I have tried creating a shortcut and 'pointing' to the other computer but it
    is not visble anywhere.

    Any ideas as to where i have gone wrong.

    Many Thanks

  2. I'm assuming this is not part of a domain, but a workgroup.
    Try making a user account with the same username and password on both
    computers and assigning the appropriate shared and NTFS permissions on that
    folder.
