If you want to connect only these two laptops, you should not need an access point. Give static IP addresses to each of the computers' network interfaces (laptop 1: 192.168.0.1, laptop 2: 192.168.0.2, subnet mask for both: 255.255.255.0) and open the firewall of XP. Put both into the same Workgroup. Share a folder and have same users and passwords on both, and networking should already work. Try it, and let us hear your results.

Regards,
has.

What is it that your wanting your network to do??  The solution given is fine if all you want to be able to do is share files between laptops.  Are you wanting to share an Internet connection between the 2 laptops??

even m using the wireless lan at our home between 2 laptops n one desktop . both laptop is wifi enabled . it just required one wireless lan card n the access point to make them work under lan . also we can do that without accesspoint . these days we hv usb wireless lan doungles which acts as both the wireless lan card n as well as access point. so just we neeed to attach that through the desktop n make it run under access point mode  (its zyxcel 220 ) .
