      Wireless Networking wire free between computers - Help please

      Am I trying to do the impossible?

      I have two computers that both work with wired and with wireless connections to the DG934 Black Sky Router.

      Connected by cables through the router both computers network and can see each other

      Can this be done without the cables being connected to the router so that the network between the two computers is wireless? If yes, what have I probably not done to make this happen?

      Both computers are setup to be on the same workgroup. Both work through the wireless connection to the broadband connection.

      Any help would be appreciated

      Make sure firewalls are turned off in both computers and turn off wireless security temporarily, make a note of the computer's names and rerun Add A Network Place.

      If the folders you want to access have share turned on and the system works wired it should work wireless -- though I find patience is sometimes required when using the Add Network Places.

      If the 2 pcs can see each other and network through a wired connection and both work wirelessly to the router then they will network wirelessly without any change.

      Try working one wired and one wireless first; if that works (as it should), go full wireless.

      Regards,

      Felix
