Windows 7: Cannot connect my win7pro and win7homepremium with Mouse Without Board

Cannot connect my win7pro and win7homepremium with Mouse Without Board

I just downloaded the Mouse Without Boarders so that I could use my keyboard and mouse to control both my desktop and laptop.

My laptop runs Window 7 Home Premium and my desktop runs Windows 7 Professional and both of them are 64bit systems.

I installed Mouse Without Boarders in the two computers but they just could not connect to each other.

What I've done: I disabled all the firewall of both computers and things that might block the connection but it didn't solve the problem; I also used each computer to ping each other using static ip addresses and that worked fine.

Now I cannot find a way to solve this problem, and anyone have any idea?

my desktop connect to LAN with wire while my laptop wireless.

Many thanks.

I'm quoting from the first page at Engadget
"...he built Mouse Without Borders: software that lets you control computers on the same wireless network ..."

I wonder if "wireless" means that both systems need to be using wireless... I could be wrong, though.
