Wireless Networking....cannot access internet!
Posted on 2006-10-22
I am currently running two dell pc's at home and use a wired network connection. I am trying to "go wireless" with some success.
Both pc's are running XP Pro (SP2). One has a Netgear MA111 wireless USB adaptor and the other a TP-Link USB wireless adaptor.
I am trying to create an ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) network. I have created the basic network (SSID and WEP Key etc.)
Both PC's pick each other up and the network says it is connected. What I am having trouble with is Internet Access.
My Network Places consists of my broadband connection, the wireless connection and my wired connection (disabled)
I have gone through the Internet Connection Sharing setup under the properties tab and shared the connection but the 2nd pc does not pick the the internet. I have disabled the firewall between pc etc. but still no joy.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
PS. Both USB drivers are current, recently downloaded from relevant homepages.
