Don't have a router and want to connect the two wireless computers with each...


Don't have a router and want to connect the two wireless computers with each other you need to set up both computers to an adhoc mode.If using Windows XP in your desktop computer follow the steps below to configure the wireless adapter to adhoc mode.

Go to control panel> Network Connections> Right click on wireless network then hit properties> Click on Wireless network Tab and removed everything under preferred networks. Click on Add button then type on the Network name SSID "Linksys". Remove the check for "The key is provided for me automatically" then enter the network key. Make sure that you enter 10 or 26 characters on the network key box. You can only set a network in using alphanumeric characters. You can create a network key by using numbers only,letters only or combination of numbers and letters from 0-9 or A-F characters. Put a check mark on the box says "This is a computer-to -computer (adhoc) network." Hit the ok button. Under the preferred networks highlight the SSID that you have set "Linksys"then hit the advance button. Click on computer to computer [adhoc]networks only then hit close and ok all the way out.

You need to do the same thing on the laptop where you have the installed a wireless adapter. SSID and network key should be the same on your network card. It should be set to adhoc as well.

Both computers must have static IP address. For the desktop computer you can set an IP address of 192.168.1.2 and the subnet mask is255.255.255.0. The laptop must have an IP address of 192.168.1.3 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.

From the desktop computer, under network connections right click on wireless network connection then click on view available wireless network. Highlight Linksys then hit connect. Do the same thing on thel aptop. Once they are both connected try to ping each other and see if you will get reply. To ping the laptop from the desktop computer,follow the steps below:

a.On WinXP/2000:
Click Start > Run. On the Open field type cmd then hit OK. On the DOS prompt type ping 192.168.1.3 then hit enter.
b.On Win98/Me
Click Start > Run. On the Open field type command then hit OK. On the DOS prompt type ping 192.168.1.3 then hit enter.

Do the same thing on the laptop but instead of pinging the 192.168.1.3you need to ping the 192.168.1.2.

If you got replies it means that you are already communicating with each other.

If you are getting a low signal you may change the channel on the adapter. Follow the steps below on how to change the settings of the adapter:
For Windows XP and 2000
Right click on my computer properties>click on hardware>device manager>under network adapters right click on wireless-G notebook adapter then select properties>click on the Advance Tab then look channel then change it to 11. You may try to use other channels like1, 6, and 9.

For Windows 98 and ME
Click start>control panel>network>look for wireless-G notebook adapter with a green icon left beside it then double click on it>click on the Advance Tab then look for channel then change itto 11. You may try to use other channels like 1, 6, and 9.

Hope this help everyone.

My husband has Netgear in our house but i need an IP address for my lap top and Ipod, can you help me with that?


If your laptop has wireless card installed, turn on wireless radio of laptop. It will show the networks available and will allow you to create a new adhoc network. Try to create a new adhoc network and assign a new network name. It will broadcast an IP over adhoc network and you can connect other wireless device to the laptop using this adhoc network name.

MY PRINTER OFFLINE


I don't have a solution for this problem. I have a comment. I have the same types of issues with my HP. I hate HP. Why is it that we can design software to remotely fly fighter jets but we can't get reliable software to print wirelessly? I am now going to throw my HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One in the road.

Adding wireless printer to thinkpad T43


If you have a wireless router, the printer will talk to the router and not to the thinkpad. You would have to establish a connection between the printer and the router. Then share the printer to print.
If you dont have a wireles router and you are trying to connect your thinkpad to the printer directly, the wireless card in the thinkpad should be in the adhoc mode. ( See Wireless card properties )
Hope this helps
Thanks

Printer disappears !


hi there are 2 types of wireless installation 1 is infrastructure and the other one is Adhoc in Infrastructure the computer and the printer are connected through a router this is a permanent sort of connection and remains even if the computer is shut down
but the Adhoc connection is a short duration connection in which the computer and the printer are directly connected and the connection is lost as soon as the printer or the computer is turned off
so its always recommended to connect teh printer using the infrastructure mode so that you do not face any problem
