You can connect two computers using crossover UTP cable and it’s called peer-to-peer network connection. You can also network two computers in a wireless peer-to-peer connection and it is called Ad hoc wireless network. Peer-to-peer or P2P connection means that two computers or devices communicate directly without any access point or server. This type of network connection is sometimes desirable when you only need a quick and temporary connection to share files, when the network infrastructure is having problem, or when you require guest connection.
In order to create an ad hoc wireless network, each computer running Windows Vista needs to have wireless network interface either built-in network interface card (NIC) or by using wireless dongle USB device. Both computers should also share the same network Service Set Identifier (SSID) with corresponding passphrase key.
