After searching a lot for your problem at last i got the solution :

With two laptops with the same version of Windows and wireless adapters, you can share information, chat or play game wirelessly.

Most of the laptops have Wi-fi or wireless connection. Therefore, you do not need any wire to connect two laptops in your house or in your office. All you need to do is to create a pear-to-pear connection between these two.

At first, you have to label IP for laptops you want to connect because they normally do not have an access point. Here's how you create an IP for your laptop:

Step 1: Open "Wireless Network Connection Status" (Image 1) in your Windows (it should locate in your system tray". If not, you can still open it in control panel).

Step 2: Click "Properties" to open "Wireless Network Connection Properties" (Image 2).

Step 3: Double-click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and set IP for both of your laptops. The IP address can be random. However, you should have the same "Subnet mask". For example:

Computer 1:


Subnet mask: 311.311.311.0

Computer 2:


Subnet mask: 311.311.311.0

You can leave other information blank.

Now, after having their own IP, your laptops can be connected to each other. You have to go to the taskbar and find "Wireless Network Connection" symbol. Right-click and choose "Change the order of preferred networks" in the appeared window.

Next, you have to add a new network. Name your network at "Network name" blank and create a password at "Network key". Notice that you have to mark "This is a computer to computer".

Find the symbol of wireless network in system tray right-click to it. Choose "View wireless network". Click "Connect". Now, one of your computers will broadcast signal and with for other computer to connect. In the computer that receives signal, search for the network that you created and named. Click "Connect".

After connecting two laptops, you can share files, chat or even play game through LAN. Using "Net meetings" (available in most version of Windows) would be the best way to use the connection. Go to run, type in Conf to open Net Meeting.

    Open your internet connection. Get into the game. Switch to
    multiplayer. The latest patch should donwnload (if you need it). Pick a
    game and enter!

    if ur playing behind a router, you may have
    to open up some ports. If u have dialup, such as AOL, ull have to dial
    into the internet service and then u can play once ur dialed in. If u
    have cable or dsl, just make sure the modem is on and choose a
    multiplayer game and enter. Also, if u have a firewall, you may need to
    allow the game to access the internet. That's all the circumstances i
    can think of right now. It would be helpful to tell us of ur internet
    connection, router/firewall situation, etc. Have fun playing Call of
    Duty online!

    Try to avoid servers full of stupid little kids who play using wall
    hacks (you can see people hiding behing walls and objects, removes
    vegetation, some allow you to shoot people through solid objects) and
    aimbots (just fire without aiming and you're guaranteed a kill every
    time) etc.. Spoils the game!I've seen some COD servers with players
    using script hacks to give them godmode, anti-gravity (able to fly)and
    a run speed 5x faster than everyone else!!
    I've followed people
    in spectator mode who have been blatently using hacks, even after patch
    1.4 was introduced with 'Punkbuster'.
    You can usually tell by the
    scoring too, sometimes you see a player that has made 150 kills and no
    deaths in the first 5 minutes of play??
    Not trying to put a
    dampener on it, COD online is fantastic if everyone is playing
    properly, justs happens to be lots of arse-bandits online too!
