Peer to Peer wireless networking

Hi.

Is it possible to create a peer to peer networking using wireless nics?

I have a laptop and a pc at home and I want them to be connected without installing any routers or access points. If I'll put a wireless network card in the two of them, will it work?

Thanks,
Yossi

Yes, it is called an "ad hoc" network.  This is a network that consists only of other wireless clients without the use of an access point.

If you need any additional advice regarding this please let me know and I will be more than happy to explain.  However I would be repeating a lot of whats in this article.

Oh, and while these directions were written for Windows XP, they apply to any Windows (98+ including 98/ME/2000/XP)
