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.

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