|I want to set up an ad hoc wireless network for games and such.|
I followed this:
The thing is I don't necessarily want the computers connected to the internet. I just want them to be connected to eachother wirelessly without having to use a router.
The laptop I am using to "host" the ad hoc connection has a built in wireless adapter (like most laptops).
When I tried setting up the ad hoc host it showed up on the wireless network list for only the host computer as "on demand". I tried to get other computers to find the host computer on the wireless network list and it wont show up. All computers are windows XP.
I guess I could try to set it up with the internet connected to the host computer, but again that isn't necessarily what i want. I mostly want it strictly local for this ad hoc thing.
