wireless ad-hoc with Windows XP and Windows 2000

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?ZHVtbWthdWY=?=, Sep 23, 2004.

  1. I have a desktop Running Windows XP pro and a laptop running windows 2000
    pro. Both Systems have Linksys wireless cards installed in them. I am
    trying to network the two in ad-hoc so that I do not have to buy a router.
    the problem is that every time I can locate one or the other on the network,
    the windows XP box freezes as soon as I try to access it. The XP box also
    freezes when I try to access the Win 2000 box. any suggestions would be
    greatly appreciated
