Wireless computer to computer connection

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SmV6YQ==?=, Jul 15, 2006.

  1. I have just purchase two laptop computers, both with Wi-Fi. I have tried in
    vain to connect these computers via wireless connect with limited results. At
    present, both computer connect to the "Home" network I created, but they are
    unable to "connect" together. I've even tried turning off the firewall on
    both and sharing the entire "C" drive. All I want to do is be able to share
    files between them and the cable internal connection (which is on my laptop,
    via the built in nework card). Both laptops are running XP home SP2, with all
    current Microsoft updates installed. Please help as my wife is getting nasty
    because we can not share the internet connection.

  2. Try this:

    mspx

    Note your new computers are likely running third party security software
    which may need to be configured to allow file sharing.
