Set up a wireless network without router

When you configure a wireless network without router, how many computers can I connet to this network?  Is there a limit?


Wow, I'm sorry.  I must have had a brain freeze when I read your post.  * From

What is the maximum number of wireless clients that can be networked using the Ad-Hoc mode, i.e. without an access point?

The theoretical limit, which is the same as in Ethernet, is determined by the 48-bit MAC address field in each frame of wireless data. The practical limit is determined by the constraints that can be integrated to client drivers. As a general rule, Ad-Hoc networks with 16 to 32 stations should be possible.

See you soon

    You probably need to install some network drivers for your wireless card.

    Download drivers

    Visit the manufacturer's Web site and select your computer model (this is usually done in the Support section). You should be able to download drivers for your model. Download the driver (s) and follow the instructions to install - every computer is different, so I can't give you exact directions. You can also try to use Windows Update to get drivers - it is located in the start menu.

  • DeskJet 3055 has J11n: connect Deskjet 3055a J11n wireless network without PIN or WPSA and with Mac Mavericks


    I run a Mac with Yosemite and would like to add the printer Hp Deskjet 3055a J11n for the wireless network.

    My router doesn't have any a WPSA button and not a PIN code.

    Before, when I used Mac OS 10.6, I could run the features of the CD that came with the Hp Printer.

    When I try to open the Setup from the CD on Yosemite, he says 'cannot open only on Mac 10.6.

    How can I connect the printer to my wireless network?

    Thank you!!


    Hi @MarjoleinPeters,

    A driver full features for Yosemite is not available for your printer, or from the CD supplied with your printer from the HP website.  This document applies to the HP printers supported in versions of Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.6 (Snow Leopard), 10.9 (Mavericks), and 10.10 (Yosemite) who have only drivers available via Apple Software Update.

    I can help you put the printer on your network wireless software. I use this method for iPads, iPhones and other devices that have no software.

    1. Restore default network settings on the printer by pressing the wireless button, by going to settings and then restore the default settings. The wireless button should then start flashing, this means that it is now in auto wireless mode.
    2. To connect to the network that broadcasts the printer. It is usually HP-setup-3050 has and then a part of the MAC address. Always wireless light will blink on the printer at this stage, which is normal since it is not a real ad-hoc connection.
    3. Load up the built-in webserver (EWS) in the browser of your mobile device. For automatic wireless default IP address is
    4. Go to the tab network along the top of the SAP.
    5. Click Setup Wizard along on the left hand side to begin to set up the printer wireless.

    You have now completed the configuration of wireless network, follow the next 3 steps to start printing.

    1. Blue wireless light will be solid, put the Mac on your network.
    2. Add the printer in system preferences.
    3. Print

    Please let me know if that solves the problem. I look forward to hear from you.

  • Unable to connect to the wireless network without help

    2 month old laptop dv7-3162 and it has now stopped working in terms of connection to the Internet wireless. The other computers in the House connect correctly (wireless). So I know for a fact that this isn't a thing of router (my router AND the motem is an all in one device). Now, IV ' e updated my drivers for the latest drivers (only the atheros adapter wireless if it matters) and nothing to fixxed the question. He sees wireless networks, that he just does not connect to them. IV ' e reset and power cycled motem/router several times without success. A ran a windows update and several reboots.

    Thanks in advance

    He worked, all you have to do is go in the device management and wireless network card driver, disable, restart, let it reinstall, and it should work. It did in my case.

  • Set up a wireless network printer

    I lost my wireless connection and have had to put up again. Now I have my 6600 Officejet wireless printer successfully implemented with my router and also my computer running Windows XP. To allow printing I configured a USB connection. When I run the software from the USB mode to the wireless network that it starts very well mobile file across but the bar then gets the opportunity of almost 3/4 and everything stops and after awhile, he says that he didn't. The only thing that seems a little strange to me is that, on the Page of Configuration of HP network, it shows the wireless Direct as having a different SSID this could be the problem?

    Wow, excellent.   Thanks for the update.

  • How to connect a USB-wireless printer to a wireless network without PC

    Some HP printers do not have a Wizard of wireless configuration integrated into the façade to connect to a network.  These models install to a computer via a USB connection and the software then sends information wireless via the USB cable to the printer.  However, you do not always have a present computer and still need to connect these printers to a wireless network.  You can use a wireless, like an iPad device, to do this.  For the example below, I used an iPad and a printer Deskjet 3510.

    The first step is to make sure that your printer is aired at an (Ad Hoc) network.  To do this, turn on the printer and press the wireless or wireless Tower, and then in the Setup menu. Connect the iPad (or other wireless device) to the signal being broadcast by the printer wireless.

    Once the iPad is connected to the printer as long as a network connection, open the Web browser on the iPad.  Type in the address bar and go to this site.  Printer status page should load and look like the picture below.

    Click the network at the top of the status page.  You can get a quick warning while being redirected to an HTTPS site.  Click Ok in the message box to continue.  When you click OK, you can get a warning about the identity of the server or the certificate.  Select the option that allows you to continue.  The wording can vary from a browser, but there should be an option to continue anyway.

    Network status page should now be loaded at this point.  Select Assistant wireless to start the installation of the wireless network and click Next.

    When then is selected, it must list the available wireless networks.  Select your network from the list and click Next.  When the network is selected, it should be noted.

    Enter the network password if necessary and click Next.

    A message should be received indicating the name and if security is enabled.  The message below which must indicate that the settings have been saved successfully.  If it indicates that the settings were saved successfully with an error, the configuration of the network is more than likely operation.  Click Ok at the bottom.

    After selecting OK, select status to check that the printer is connected successfully.  It may take a few minutes for light wireless to the printer to stop flashing.  Once it is a solid blue, the printer must be on the network and operation.

    Once this is over, then you will be able to reconnect to your wireless (wireless router) normal signal for internet access.  Now, the iPad and the printer are on the same home network.

    I hope this helps.

  • P20: How to set up a wireless network

    Help, please. Please can someone tell me how to configure my satellite P20 to exploit in the wireless. I've got 2pcs as an icon in the bar indicating connection 1394 tasks. Speed 400.0Mpbs
    connected state. What is that.? I think I did this through the Connection Wizard, but didn't know what I was doing or how. PS. I'm not on broadband.


    As Miro Wireless and IEEE 1394 (firewire) are two completely different things. If you want to learn more on this subject see please this link, 294236, sid7_gci748584, 00.html. FireWire is mainly used for the transfer of data from external devices such as camcorder, external HARD disk or external devices, CD or DVD, because the data transfer speed is fast enough.

    Can you please tell me exactly is it your device wireless card? You can check in the Device Manager. If so use to the first switch wireless on the left side of your laptop. If the wireless card is enabled and wireless light is on use the key combination FN + F8 to check if the card is correctly activated. After that, you must configure a wireless connection using the wireless network connection properties.

  • Router E4200, cannot secure the wireless network

    When my E4200 wireless network appears on a discovery list of wireless networks, there a padlock beside him in devices (like my Xbox and iPhone) that who would use to show that it is a wireless network, requiring a password. When I use my Xbox to connect wireless now, he said: "you connect to an unsecured network. Are you sure you want to continue? »

    I used the web portal to select 'Factory Reset' of my router. I also told my iPhone to forget and not automatically connect wireless network. After factory reset, I went to the configuration section of the web page wireless network access router, put a new name for the wireless network, personal WPA2 enabled for 2.4 and 5 GHz networks, developed a completely new password for two I had never used before and then looked for the network on my iPhone. I chose it and it connected right away without asking for a password. Still once, the network does not appear with a padlock next to him in the list of devices to the network from my iPhone WiFi and my XBox says always that this is an unsecured network.

    When using my internet browser to access router, WiFi networks are both classified as WPA2 Personal and each has a password in the password box (and Yes, I recorded the changes - that's what it shows even if I disconnect and then reconnect to the router access.) I tried to remove the power cord for 30 seconds and plug in again and there is no change.

    It's quite a recent change, like maybe the last week or more. I don't know if there was a firmware update or what - my router is configured for auto updates and when I click to check the latest updates, it says that there are no more updates available.

    TL; Dr: said access my router my wireless security is turned on. None of my wireless devices see as secure WiFi networks and each of them can connect without having to type a password.

    Do a reset factory and set up from scratch.

    If this fails, try this:

    Manually download the FW file to the local office of PCs.
    Reset the router, use IE or FF with all security disabled add-ons, load the FW file and let you treat.
    Factory reset the router once more and set up from scratch.

  • Hi dear, I just set up my connection wireless network with password

    Hi dear,

    I just set up my network with password wireless connection and configure my router on the IP , but to be

    honest im not sure person cannot access my network and record everything I have on my is it safe? Please tell me know if you

    don't know.

    Hi saba161,

    If you have the security key settings of the wireless network that turns on encryption. With encryption, people cannot connect to your network without the security key. In addition, any information that is sent on your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help prevent attempts to access your network and your files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wi Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA2.

    Safety is always important; with a wireless network, it is still more important, because your network's signal could go beyond the boundaries of your home. If you don't secure your network, people with computers nearby may be able to access the information stored on computers on your network and use your Internet connection to get on the web.
