    Ad hoc (computer to computer) network!!!!!!!!!!


    Hi!
    As far as know in windows 8 only way creating ad hoc network is using cmd with admin priviligies.
    But in Windows 7 there was easy (graphical) way of it. Does anybody know that will MS make things easy in Windows 8.1.
    It is important for me because of working enviroment and I do not want to use third party software.
    Thanks.

    You are mistaken. There is no built in graphical interface method for setting up a hosted wireless network in Windows 7 or 8. If you don't want to use third party software "connectify" then you have to use the command prompt.

    You can do it manually through the command prompt or you can use connectify software or a virtual router.

    The link that bassfisher posted shows all three methods.

    Thank you for your answer.
    Sorry, but I am not mistaken about Windows 7. There is graphical method creating ad-hoc (computer to computer) network available in Windows 7. And I am using it.
    Yes, I know about CMD method, "Connectify" and "Virtual Router".

    For example: How to Set Up an Ad Hoc Wireless Computer-to-Computer Network | 7 Tutorials


    It seems that, there will be no changes in Windows 8.1 in this direction.
