You will need
- network cable, Wi-Fi adapter.
Consider the example of a wired connection of the laptop computer. Purchase a network cable of the desired length. Connect with it, the network card of computer and laptop.
Turn on both devices and wait for the definition of new local network. Open the settings of this network connection on the computer. Find "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and open its properties. Enter any IP address in the corresponding field. The only rule – the numeric value of all the segments must not exceed 255.
Do the same thing in the LAN settings of the laptop. When entering the IP address, replace the fourth paragraph.
In order to go to the computer files, working with laptop, simultaneously press the Win button (start) and R and type in the box \\184.108.40.206, where the numbers represent the IP address of the computer.
If the cable connection does not suit you, then buy a wifi adapter. These devices connect to the USB ports and PCI. The latter is located on the motherboard inside the system unit.
Connect the adapter to the computer and install the drivers for it. Open the control center network and sharing. Go to "Manage wireless networks". Click "Add". Click on "Create a network the computer-computer". Click "Next".
Specify the name of the future network, select security type, enter the password and check the box next to "Save settings for this network". Click "Next".
Now open the list of available wireless networks on laptop. Connect to the network you just created. Please configure both devices as described in the second and third steps. To get access to the files of the neighboring device, use the algorithm described in the fourth step.
Advice 2: How to create a network between two laptops
To create a local network between two laptops you can use several different options. They have their own advantages and disadvantages, so the choice depends on your target connections for these devices.
You will need
- network cable, USB network adapter.
Usually two of the computer or laptop combine with each other to create a shared connection to the Internet. Let's look at cable connection laptops. Connect them to the network adapters together.
Of course, for this you will need a network cable. The obvious disadvantage of such a method two. First, it lost the mobility of both devices, and secondly, the bulk of laptops have only one network card. Purchase a network adapter with a USB connector.
Connect it to one of the laptops. Install the drivers for this device. Connect it with Internet cable. Set up a new connection to the Internet. Open the properties for this connection and select the tab "Access".
To allow other computers on your local network to use the Internet connection of the laptop. Open the settings of the first network adapter and set it to a fixed IP address of 192.168.0.1.
Go to the network settings to the second laptop. In the properties of TCP/IP Protocol complete the first, third, and fourth fields of the following values:
In the case of the establishment of the wireless connection of notebooks all of the above settings will be identical. But you need to create the connection. Open the control center networks and common access to the first laptop.
Go to "Manage wireless networks". Locate the "Add" button and click it. Create a new connection "computer-computer". To do this, specify the name and password to access the network and the security type.
Turn on the wireless adapter in the second laptop. Run a search for available networks. Connect to your local network. Guide configure wireless adapters on both devices, as described in the fourth and fifth steps.
