View Full Version : ad-hoc wireless networking question

20-09-2004, 05:41 PM
I need to set up a ad-hoc wireless network. Some network cards say they support ad-hoc and infustructure mode while others say nothing. Do all wireless network cards work in ad-hoc. I'm looking at a 802.11g setup. Basically i want it to work just like the crossover cable i have currently between the two machines. Is this easy to do?

I think most work in ad-hoc. Some ppl say its better to let XP configure a wireless, than to use the disk/cd that came with the wireless card.

As it seems to confuse things a bit!

It might also be easier to configure wireless, if u have SP2 for XP. It might may things a bit easier to set up. Are u using XP or other?

xp prop on both, but im prob not going to have sp2 on one of them. no much more hdd space left and very slow.
