How To Connect Two Computers Wirelessly Or Over A Home/Office Network

Note: If you want to create a VPN(Virtual Private Network) between two computers you can check this tip.

Are you looking forward to connect two computers or laptops wirelessly so you can share some files? Or do you want to connect them over Home/Office Networks? You can do this by creating a wireless ad-hoc connection which is a build-in feature of Windows Vista. But what if you are using Windows XP? Those people who are looking for a simple software that can do everything without touching any setting in their Windows, should check out WiPeer.

Apart from file sharing, WiPeer allows you can chat and even play multiplayer games too. Here are few examples when you should use this software as described on their website,

1. You are visiting your friends and would like to transfer photos of a shared trip from your laptop to theirs. Wouldn’t it be great if you could share your files with them directly from one computer to the other?


2. You are sitting in a boring lecture. You and your friends all have laptops, but your university has not installed an access point in the lecture room. Wouldn’t it be great if you could play a game of Chess or Reversi against them, or even gossip with them about yesterday’s football match?

3. You have a home network, or even a small office network, and you’d like to share files among your computers without having to set up a dedicated server. There has to be a simple way of doing this.

It is a useful and handy little tool that  you should always carry around. Simply set up a small option and connect within seconds.
