So, we have Smart Bro in our boarding house. We have two laptops, both with Wi-Fi capability. My boardmate’s idea is to buy a wireless router so that we can share the internet connection. But I have a better idea. Why spend on a wireless router if we can connect the laptops directly? Well, I didn’t know it’s possible, but it is. I just googled and found the steps in setting up a wireless network without a router. The steps are directly from Microsoft. See it here. It is called ad hoc connection.
After following the steps, we were able to set it up. Now, we can surf the web at the same time using our laptops. One is directly connected to Smart Bro, one is sharing internet connection via Wi-Fi. Cool! So, we were able to save some money for that wireless router.
