How to make desktop into home server/wireless ad-hoc router

I have an HP Pavillion 750c Desktop pc just sittin' in the closet. Like to give it a job. I want to make it my home server and use in place of wireless router. I don't want to hook up its keyboard and bulky crt monitor. I would prefer to know how to access it via wireless networking thru my laptop. I am running XP Home OS on both. I bought a USB ported wireless device for desktop and will hardwire the desktop to my broadband provider's modem to serve as my router. This much I know, but I'm lost the rest of the way. Thanks in advance. Doug.

    In order to configure it for use as a home server, you will have to use a keyboard and monitor. After configuration, you can use RDP (remote desktop protocol) in windows to control it from another machine on the network. You will need to configure the security to allow you to connect and manipulate it from a remote machine.

I can't get the internet sharing to work. i had installed and configure the wireless router, Linksys WRTG45 connected to a desktop pc running win7. internet sharing is enabled on the modem. now we're using...


If you are using the wireless router then you will not use the Ad-hoc mode.
You aloso don't need to share the internet on the modem.
make sure that if you conecnt the computer directly to the modem, it goes on line.
If it is on line then you can connect the modem to the router and computer to the router.
open the setup page and change the settings of the router.
once ytou setup the router then you should be able to go on line on all the computer.
You just need to connect to the network on other computers.

I purchase a wireless interprets 405> Do i need a router foir the wireless


X1270 is not a wireless printer...
I find nothing on an Interprets 405...
If you have purchased a wireless printer device, your computer will need a wireless card.
If your computer has wireless built in and you have no router it is called an 'Ad Hoc' network. The printer must support an 'Ad Hoc' network or you will need a wireless router.
'Ad Hoc' networks are notoriously insecure, so a wireless router is a very wise choice. It helps keep you safe from hackers on the Internet as well as it functions as a home firewall and network host.
If this does not help, please give me more detail.

take off the ADHOC. chnage it to regular wirless conection. WEP/WES. connect the laptop to the wirless router.
configure the folders on the dekstop to "share" under the share and security tab. give a name that you can rementber and limited the number of user and their login rights. (desktop-must have a login for the share to work).

Unable to connnect wirelessly thru gprs phone.


You need to connect first one system with the phone. have the proper software of the phone installed on the system and your system should detect it as a modem. you may need to contact your network provider for assistance. Once you have establish a connection on the first sytem and it culd browse, that is the time that you need to create an ad hoc under create a new connection. once you have established an ad hoc, let your other system detect it wirelessly and try to connect to it.
By the way GPRS is similar to dial up so if you have 2 systems online it is just like splitting your 56k connection speed and it could give you no browse at times.

Hope this helps...

Home wireless network


Most wireless1.gif networks are setup as infrastructure networks, meaning all communication is to/from a wireless access1.gif point/router that serves the same function as a switch/hub in a wired network as a central point to transfer communications from machine to machine. One works over the air the other through a wire.

There is an alternate form of wireless networking1.gif refered to as ad hoc -- in this version of wireless networking every wireless adapter1.gif can "talk" to any other wireless adapter configured with the same SSID (name) and security encryption (none, WEP, WPA). This is how somewhat less impromptu wireless networks are created similar to impromptu infrared networks some of us have used. One limitation of the ad hoc networks I have seen configured to date is access to the internet. I have posted an article where a stationary PC (required to be running for any other wireless machine to access the internet) with a wireless card in ad hoc mode could act as the router for wireless network but it required a cabled connection the internet. I suppose it could be a second wireless connection on a separate channel with a second wireless adapter in an infrastructure network but why? These types of networks are only recommended in another article for a limited (small) number of machines.

Based on this are you asking to create an ad hoc network to connect 2 PC's1.gif wirelessly without a wireless router1.gif or access to the internet from the wireless network (without a dedicated machine)?
