I have purchased two belkin USB wireless network USE adapters. I have installed them correctly on both machines. The probelm is that I get 'No network devices were found in range' message on both machines. I have tried rebooting both machines and nothing works. I want to chare the internet between the two Pc's. I dont have an access point or router but that shoudlnt matter right becuase the two usb adaprters should see each other.

Any helo would be appreciated.

Thanks for the info. I finally got them to talk to each other but i cannot get them to share data or the internet. Looking at the settings for both cards, when i click on connection details, there is no ip address subnet mask or dns thing on either machine.


They are set to auto find and ip address. Any ideas
