Need to quickly connect up to your friends laptop wirelessly while you’re at school so you can download his entire MP3 and movie collection? Unless you’re on the same network and in the same workgroup or domain, it’s practically impossible to share data between two computers without some technical knowledge.
However, if you have a laptop or computer that has a wireless card and so does your buddy, you can use them to make a wireless connection between the two laptops. Once they are connected wirelessly (also called a peer-to-peer ad-hoc wireless network), you can easily share data between the computers.
You can create an ad-hoc network in Windows itself, however, it’s a real pain in the butt and still not very easy to share data even after the two computers are connected. That’s where you can download a freeware application that will help you setup a wireless peer-to-peer network between two computers with any need for a router, access point or the Internet!
WiPeer not only supports directly file sharing between computers, but also playing multi-player games, chatting, and collaboration between programs.
Here are a couple of the major features of this nifty little application:
Ad-Hoc social networks – WiPeer is also like an IM application, whereby you can create your own profiles and send chat requests from the program itself. You can also see who else is online if they are running WiPeer in proxmity.
Interactive Multiplayer Games – This program is cool! It comes with games built into it like chess, Chinese checkers, Reversi, and Connect 4!
File Sharing & File Searching – You can share files or complete folders with others using WiPeer. You can also search files that are shared out by other WiPeer users, but does not show private files.
Create Ad-Hoc networks – This is obviously the best feature of WiPeer! You can create a connection between two computers without any reliance on routers, access points, or any other third party infrastructure. They can be formed anywhere, like on trains, buses, airplanes, etc.
It’s a good idea to keep the program on your USB stick also just in case you run into a friend that you would like to share data with, but they don’t have WiPeer installed on their computer. It’s a tiny program (only 4MB) and doesn’t take up very many resources at all!
Overall, a great program that should have been created a long time ago! Works wonderfully and saves a TON of hassle!
