two computers connected via a single ethernet cable.

one computer runs a server and the other computer connects to that server to transfer some files for example.

this works fine with a ethernet cable but I cant get it to work using  802.11b wireless.

one of the computers is running a adhoc and the other computer connects to the adhoc.  But the ip address of both computers is 127.0.0.1.

any suggestions welcomed

thank you

try this: in the properties of the network connection that is created for the wireless network cards, edit the TCP/IP properties and statically assign addresses like 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2 with subnet masks 255.255.255.0

ps. every machine always uses 127.0.0.1 by default as a loopback address to point to itself

In an Ad-Hoc network (since there is no DHCP) you have to manually assign addresses/subnet masks.  JammyPak hit the nail on the head with his comment.

You will have to assign static ip's to both nic cards and don't for get if you don't have any hubs or switches you need to use a crossover cable. So one crossover cable if you are doing computer to computer.
