File Sharing

By Tyharo ·
I have recently been transferring files between laptops but every time i want to transfer something I have to copy the file to my external hard drive then connect the external to the other laptop and drag the file over. This gets very annoying after a while so I was wondering how I would be able to transfer files between my laptops without the use of and flash drives or external hard drives.
Would creating a wireless file sharing server work? If so how would I make one, I have full access to my modem and router as well.

Just share a folder on the source or destination computer.

Though if you are not using XP you may need to visit the M$ Site to find out the differences in using Vista or 7 Homegroups.

Generally speaking, you look in your OS "start menu".

There will be an app for networking in it. Generally tell you how to connect two computers directly, or through a router or server or whatever. Same general place you go to set up internet connections.
