Windows 7: Tutorial request: How to set up ad-hoc Wi-Fi?

Tutorial request: How to set up ad-hoc Wi-Fi?

- How to set up ad-hoc Wi-Fi with Windows' built in tools

- Or with a 3rd party app like Connectify (free version didn't do the trick)

Which is the best of the two, or a 3rd method is preferred?

I Googled but didn't find.

Hello XCT , and welcome to SevenForums . I am not sure how much help you need but, basically it goes like this : Homegroup setup takes just a few steps. First, simply open the Control Panel. Under Network and Internet click on Choose homegroups and sharing options. Click the Create a homegroup button. For each computer you want to connect to the Homegroup, go to that machine and follow the same steps. Instead of selecting Create, however, select for Join a homegroup. Now you can share printers and files. Simple! You want to name each device the same name homegroup name .
Post if you need more assistance and I am sure we can assist you further .
