    I have two laptops that i want to network with wireless. I am having problems with this. I have used the wizard and transfered the data using the USB stick and cannot get them to find each other . I am trying to connect the pc's directly with no router and no internet connection. Can anyone help with this problem.

    I am pretty sure this cannot be done... think a router will be required... or a cross over cable....

    You see in terms of wi-fi what you have on your hands there are two RECEIVERS and with all the technical know how in the world neither can see the other because nothing is transmitting - or at least not at the level required.

    I could be slightly wrong in absolute terms and theoretically at close range maybe this could be forced to work - but so far as I am aware it is not designed to work this way.

    If anyone knows better please correct me.

    Not possible. The only way to do it without a Router is through your Infrared ports, but that isn't even worth it as the tasks you would be able to perform are sub-par at best.

    If you want Wifi- get a router.
