Trouble setting up ad hoc wireless network at home

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?S2ltYmVybHk=?=, Aug 4, 2005.

  1. I am trying to connect my two Windows XP laptops with a computer-to-computer
    (ad hoc, no access points or routers) wireless network. I have configured the
    host computer according to the directions at:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/bowman_02april08.mspx
    However, my other laptop does not see the network. I only get the message
    "No wireless netowrks were found in range."
    Here's what I have:
    Host computer: Gateway model # 6000 with an Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG
    Network Connection
    Client computer: Toshiba Satellite M35X-5163 with an Atheros AR5005GS
    Wireless Network Adapter (driver version 3.1.2.45)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If so, please help.
