Son -in-law asked me and I didn't know the answer, so can someone tell us both !

If we have two pcs in the house, each with a wireless card installed, can they "talk" to each other without needing a "router" ?

And to complicate it a bit futher, what if one was running xp and the other 98se ?

Yes you can. It's called an AD HOC network.

If more advice needed post again.
