Connecting to Wireless pc

All pc's in the company are on a wired network. I have 1 pc I want to use for a tc display but there is not network port at the location. I have a wireless network card in it. Is there anyway I can connect to this pc from a domain/wired pc???

Any ideas or work arounds appreciated.

Hello j8547,

Just to clarify, you said you have a wireless network card in the pc you want to us for the TC?

Do you already have a wireless network?  If not, you can install a wireless network that piggy backs off of your existing infrastructure.  You would just plug the wireless into your switch and run it off of there.  I would set a static address (withing your existing IP scope) to the Access Point then use the AP to distribute the IP (again, and address within your existing scope) for your TC machine.

Your TC machine would then essentially be on the same network as the rest of your machines.  You can use any number of viewers to get to the machine then, VNC viewer, RDP, LogMeIn, etc.

Ok I will explain a bit more and then you can tell me if I can do this.

I have several wireless networks around the company. This pc connects tot he closest one and picks up a 192.168 address. The wireless router a WAN IP on our network. So I need to connect via a viewer or rdp to this PC. It has a wireless card in it and is working on the wireless network.

I think the problem is the wireless address are 192.168.... and the network address are  different.........

Ok, i understand now.

You may still want to try a product like LogMeIn.  I haven't tried using it in a setup like you are describing however it installs a client on the destination machine (TC machine) to get access.  You just login to the LogMeIn website to access the destination pc:

 https://secure.logmein.com/

You can go to this site and set up an account.  They allow a trial version of the software to be used so you can see if that would work for you without having to buy anything up front. About the only thing you can't do with the trial version is push files to the machine.

Right, because they are on different IP schemes correct
