ad-hoc wireless network, where are the files ?

Post by KRK » Tue, 03 Feb 2009 21:29:22


Hello,

I have set up an ad-hoc computer-computer wireless network between my 2
Vista pcs. I think I've set up correctly, but I cannot seem to find the
shared files. Where should I be looking, in explorer ? or elsewhere ?

Thanks

K

Go into windows explorer and from the tools menu map a network drive
to \\computername\sharename (where you shared the files).


Jim.

Hi
If indeed you have an established connection you have also to set the File
and printer sharing.

Hi
When you change network component the whole system might experience changes.
As an example the IP scheme of the new Router might use a different IP
numbers while part of the system is still set with the original number.
Use static IP (or DHCP reservation if the Router supports it,
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ #2nics ) for the computer to be on RDT to make sure
that the ports are always directed toward its IP.
So the "Trick" is to start one step at the time.
First disable temporarily the Wireless security and establish a local RDT
between two LAN computers.
When it works locally you can switch back the Wireless security and then
configure the system for through the Internet.
