connect 2 pc's wirelessly

  nobbie 16:58 06 Dec 2003

hi, i have 2 pc's both win XP and i can share my wireless broadband connection "no problem", but i am having problems trying to share files between the 2 comps, when i try, i get an error message which basically says that the modem is not connecting or working or installed, BUT i thought that as long as i have a wireless nic card in each comp, then that is how they would communicate, so any help please

Go to the XP Help & Support, look for Networking. You should get a tutorial on sharing folders. Basically, you have to tell the computer to share things.

Hve you enabled file sharing on both PC's . Can you ping one PC from the other?

You have to run the Network setup Wizard on both PCs.
