Ad Hoc Networking

I am trying to set up an ad hoc wireless network between my 2 computers using 2 Actiontec usb wireless adapters. My adsl feed is to one of the machines using the Dynamode usb modem supplied by Plusnet. The Actiontec manual on the CD does not cover this point at all. Both machines are using WIN98SE

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated, or can anyone suggest any tutorial pages on the web. Cry

Ad Hoc Networking

Hi there,

While we can't officially support this configuration, from my experience you'll probably need something like a wireless access point, or some kind of Internet Connection Sharing software to allow your other machine to browse the Internet through the directly-connected machine.
