    Hello

    I am in my friends dorm and she has a pc laptop connected to the school network. They have a proxy server so alot of programs cant connect becuase she doesnt know all the settings for it. I brought my powerbookwith me which as wireless and bluetooth. How can i transfer music wirelessly or with a ethernet cable?

    Im not connected to her network becuase there is only one ethernet jack in the room. So i wanted to do it just wireless or something.

    So what im saying is 2 laptops. mac to pc no network connection between the two want to transfer music and other files to pc. on the pc we tried to enable bluetooth but it said she needed a radio thing. Theya re both built in wifi.

    You can use wireless 802.11B/G in the same way as you would ethernet. You follow the same steps in the guide. It'll be slower but not nearly as slow as Bluetooth! :eek:

    It's telling you how to share files between the two. :)

    You don't need a server.

    Okay so your saying if I enable file sharing on the laptop it will work with no router or network of somekind? What about computer to computer setup on apple?

    in the steps for existing user, there is no edit user button which means I cannot find the checkmark that I need to enable
