I have no clue on how to do this, so any help would be appreciated. I don’t have any routers or anything like that, just the Laptops. Also is it possible to set up LAN between three or four laptops at once?
Thanks in advance.
If you want to connect the wireless you have to set up an adhoc connections. If you want to connect them by wire you have to buy a switch.
How to set up a wireless LAN between two laptops?
How can I set up my wiress LAN?
I have a laptop and want to connect to another laptop. Both have wireless access to the internet, but for some reason can’t seem to sort out getting a LAN connection to each other, or a direct connection to each other.
The LAN has never worked, the error message says a network cable is unplugged.
Is it possible to set up a direct connection without infrared between the two laptops? If so, how?
i’ve changed the workgroup names on both computers to MSHOME but still can’t see both Laptops
You can connect using the wireless router that both laptops use.
You must ensure that both computers are using the same network name.
The default name for Windows is either WORKGROUP or MSHOME.
Check both computers by:
Start >> Control Panel >> Performance and Maintenance .. now click the SYSTEM icon.
In this window click the “Computer Name” tab at the top.
In this window it’ll tell you the workgroup name for this computer.
Do the same check on the other computer to ensure it’s using the same workgroup name.
Then you open up the “Network Places” and you should see each others shared files.
