You want to make what is called an "ad hoc" wireless network, unles you have a wireless router.

Is this the only way without wireless router to network computer because i need internet too

Re: wireless networking b/w two computers 80 80

Well why dont you use a wireless router?

because i dont want to spend money for only connecting two computer.

Re: wireless networking b/w two computers 80 80

Well you cant have the internet on an adhoc network, unless one of the machines has 2 NICs., why not just get a wireless router, that way you can share files, and the internet connection. they are like £30...

OK I will buy wireless router.

Thanks for the help
