Create A Quick Ad Hoc Wireless Network Connection Between Two Computers In Windows 7/Vista

Do you want to create a quick network connection between two computers or laptops to share some files?

Or maybe you want to share an internet connection?

Windows 7 and Vista have a build-in feature to create a quick ad hoc wireless network connection, this means you can connect directly with another computer or laptop without the need of a router.


To begin, click Start and select Network. Now click on Network And Sharing Center as shown in the screenshot below. If you can’t find Network, then type Network in Start Search and hit Enter.

Now in the Network And Sharing Center you can choose what to share as you can see from the screenshot below.

For additional benefits you will get while using deer hunting,
testimonials as well as the reasons why individuals need to find out much more about trying
to find their activity, click on the hyperlinks on Hunting Solution.
The long battery (2 AAs have 25 hours) will match the wait that lots of times is inevitable.
After you take action, it is possible to make course corrections.
