Peer to Peer Wireless networking

  User-BDCEDE6F-B9BE-4B7A-91A901FEC5710802 21:42 01 Mar 2005


Trying to connect PC (XP Home SP2) and laptop (Win 98 SE) using wireless. Have USB adapter in each and have managed to get them communicating, ie both icons are showing each one detecting the other.

Now need to set up network but am struggling. Ran network set up on XP machine, created network setup disk and ran this on laptop. Didn't work though and they are not networked.

Am I missing something obvious? Any hints/tips appreciated.

Firewalls can be a real pain, so either shut them down while you try to get the network working, or configure them.

Make sure there both in the same workgroup (default is MSHOME), that each has a unique name and there is a shared location on each.
