Desktop to Laptop wireless networking ..
I am currently running a Dell desktop with Vista , and I'm trying to use my
wireless connection on my laptop that is running XP. When I'm on the laptop
it shows my wireless network in range , I try to connect and a pop up comes
up and says " Please wait while Windows connects to the network... waiting
for network to be ready. " .... then nothing happens.

Is this maybe a problem with my desktops configuration, or am I
just missing something simple ?

Re: Desktop to Laptop wireless networking ..
Do you want to connect these two computers without wireless router or AP?
