Ive just bought a usb infra red adaptor to connect my laptop [which has infra red] to my main computer. Now what do I do as I have no idea. Can anyone enlighten me please, in language easy to understand. Anniesboy68, [now going on 72] PS this has been posted under the networking forum but with no reply yet!
Hi, I have usb infra red too on my XP, I normally use it for my Nokia Mob Phone, but having read your question made me wonder too. I have a IBM Thinkpad with infra red, so I switched on laptop and held the infra red window close to the infra red on my PC - bingo, both infra red's activated automatically - no software needed. First time I have ever done it too.
PS when I say all indications show that everything is ok I mean that Device managers on both systems say everything is working ok. I have to go now [have a shower, going out tonight].Will perhaps continue tomorrow, with your help??? I will leave the cptr on for a reply....AB68
