I have a problem which involves gaming\networks that I initially posted on the gaming forum:


The mod there said I should ask you fine fellows! But I was also wondering, is there anyway to set up two computers wirelessly so that they can play games with out a wireless router. His laptop has wifi and my desktop has a USB wireless adapter? If so it might be easier than trying to deal with this unknown!

Thanks for your help!

Hi. I don't know of any wireless concept to link two computers in this way... Without a router anyway... If you are on campus, I suggest possibly giving your IT people at the campus a call. It could be that they have a few ports that you need access to blocked. Only they can help you through this if that's the issue.

you could set up an Ad-hoc wireless network between the two computers...assuming that they are within range of each other...an ad-hoc network is basically a computer to computer connection...unfortunately i've never really set such a thing up between two pcs (did set one up between a projector and a laptop the other day which was pretty sweet...) so i can't really give you too many steps here
