How to connect a laptop to another laptop wirelessly

If you don't have access to a WAP (wireless access point) then you will need to configure the laptops to work in ad hoc mode. In ad hoc mode, one of the laptops will be the "host", other laptops will be clients. You need to use the same SSID (service set identifier) for all the laptops. I presume you're asking about Windows laptops; with Windows Vista, it's fairly straightforward:

1. Select Connect to from the start menu.
2. Click Set up a connection or network.
3. Click Set up an ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, click Next, and then follow the steps in the wizard.
