ezcro Posted April 8, 2015 Share Posted April 8, 2015 Using two laptops A & B (with wifi, windows 8) in the same room, I started my hosted network on laptop A from command line:netsh wlan set hostednetwork ssid=mynetwork key=password mode=allownetsh wlan start hostednetwork IPConfig from Laptop A revealed the network created: Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection* 4: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::70b9:dce4:67e3:a8a2%12 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.137.1 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : I then got the laptop B connected via wifi. I was then able to ping both laptops from one another via command line using the IP addresses found using ipconfig. However, I when attempting to join the game hosted on Laptop A from Laptop B, it failed.We were both playing offline (no internet) and the game would not show up in the browser. I tried to connect directly through the console which also didn't work (timeout error or such iirc):c_connect("22.214.171.124") Clue1: When refreshing the game browser, it would sometime show "0 results" OR other times "0/1 results". Clue2: If connecting via Ethernet cable through router, we can see the game in the game browser and connect with no issues whatsoever. How can I get wifi lan to work (we no longer have access to Ethernet cable and router). Alternate solutions to using the hostednetwork are welcome, but it must be a wifi solution requiring no other hardware. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
