I have purchased two belkin USB wireless network USE adapters. I have installed them correctly on both machines. The probelm is that I get 'No network devices were found in range' message on both machines. I have tried rebooting both machines and nothing works. I want to chare the internet between the two Pc's. I dont have an access point or router but that shoudlnt matter right becuase the two usb adaprters should see each other.

Any helo would be appreciated.

Thanks for the info. I finally got them to talk to each other but i cannot get them to share data or the internet. Looking at the settings for both cards, when i click on connection details, there is no ip address subnet mask or dns thing on either machine.


They are set to auto find and ip address. Any ideas

Have you set up a network with the wizard within xp and have you enabled file sharing
