Smartphone remote mouse app to connect to desktop pc

Specs: Windows XP, 2992Mhz/2GB
I have a Samsung S2 smartphone with the wifimouse remote mouse app. I would like to control my Dell desktop with it.

My wireless router is a D-Link DI 524 and it is wired to my desktop where the router software resides.

I have successfully controlled a laptop with the wifimouse on my smartphone but I can't control the desktop.

The desktop does not have a wireless networking card so I don't know how I can communicate with the smartphone mouse.

What do you recommend?

Thank you for your help.

If your smartphone is connected to the same wireless network (WLAN) that is part of the network that also contains the desktop, you should be able to connect to the desktop through the network. However, I'm not at all sure that's how this app connects.

I've never played with wifmouse so have no clue how that interfaces with a computer but since you got it working on a laptop, the theory (and the connection) should be the same for the desktop.

Just ensure you have any/all applicable software installed on the desktop and you should be good to go.

You should probably go through the wifimouse guide/manual for this while you're sitting at your desktop unit.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
