Wireless Networking - 2 PC's

Good Day,

I want my NC6320 to connect wirelessly to my PC. I know I should have a Ad Hoc connection but I can't seem to get it working. Can you provide any assistance?

You dont need a router or ad hoc just get your self a wireless card pcmcia or usb;install ur software for it and in minutes youll be viewing wireless networks.you can use ur own or other networks near by.these will be unsecured networks.
if you want to use your own secure network you need to configure your own internet security key for you and any others to access via wireless.
unsecure is fine it just means that no security restrictions are config.
by default your wireless enables the source to shut down connection so if you use another network you can disable this in network properties.if you use your own network it makes really no odds cos youre in control anyway.
people on wireless access your network only not your computer unless you config otherwise and even then you only use shared folders.

Why does connecting to an ad-hoc network disconnect the shared mobile broadband connection?


You can be connected to two signals at one time, if I understand your statement. My question is, why is your laptop automatically connecting to a Ad-Hoc network? Your wireless adapter Intel Wireless 3945A/B/G,settings should be scrutinized. Perhaps this will help:http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/wireless/pro3945abg

HP Photosmart c6380 wireless printer works fine, but windows xp does not recognize the scanner


  • First, we need to create the Ad hoc network that will provide wireless connection between your computer and printer. On the right hand portion of the Taskbar, you can right-click the wireless icon and choose "View Available Wireless Networks". Or you can double click the wireless icon, then click "View Wireless Networks". It is also accessible from the Control Panel. Either way, the same window as shown in step 2 will pop-up.

  • setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.2-120x120.jpg View Wireless Networks The Wireless Network Connection window shows you all the wireless networks in range including the network where you are connected. If you have many neighbors with wireless networks, it will all show up. Click "Change advanced settings" and it will bring up the Wireless Network Connection Properties window. Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab and at the bottom click "Advanced" button.
  • 3 setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.3-120x120.jpg Wireless Networks Properties From the Advanced option window, choose "ad hoc" networks only. This is just to simplify the process. You should also bring this back to original setting after you are done connecting via Ad hoc. You may choose to skip this step if you wish and you should still be able to make the connection without a problem.
  • 4 setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.4-120x120.jpg Create the ad hoc network Click the "Add" button and type in a name for your Ad hoc network. Make it more intuitive so you can easily recognize your own network just in case there are other Ad hoc in range. Check off the automatic key and enter a 5 or 10 digit network key. This is the same key that you will input at the printer later. Click OK and then OK again. You are now connected to the Ad hoc network. You are half way through.
  • 5 setup-xp-via-ad-hoc-1.5-120x120.jpg ad hoc network Make sure the printer is ON as well as the wireless radio button. On the printer control panel, press the setup button to access the menu. Go to Wireless Menu and press OK. Press the arrow to go to Setup Wizard and press OK so the printer will automatically search for wireless networks in range. From the list of networks, find the SSID or Ad hoc name that you created and press OK and type in the network key using the alphanumeric keypad on the printer. The printer should confirm the connection in less than a minute. That's it! Try to print a test page to make sure everything is working properly.

    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)?

    Link Your Console to Another Console


    Console-to-Console Connection: Wireless Some Xbox games offer console-to-console, or system-link, play, in which two or more players (depending on the game) can wirelessly network their consoles for multiplayer use. Console-to-console wireless networks are also known as ad-hoc networks. In ad-hoc networks, a wireless adapter on one device connects directly to a wireless adapter on another device. An Internet connection isn't shared with this type of network, and the console-to-console connection is typically temporary. For console-to-console play, you need: Two Xbox 360 consoles. Two Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapters. An Xbox 360 game that supports system link play. To wirelessly connect your console to another console: Attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to the back of each console as described in Use Your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter. On each console, go to the System area to enter your network settings. (They will be the same for each console.) If all settings are correct, exit the System area. The consoles should now be wirelessly connected to each other.
