Hello,
My case is a little complicated. I have 2 desktops (XP Pro) and I installed wireless adapters on both of them. Distance is about 35 meters between them. Comp.#1 is connected to internet without router. I don't need to share the internet connection. I just want to take control of comp#1 from comp#2 (explore documents, run programs..). I'v checked all alternatives of Windows XP regarding networking; there is no computer-to-computer connection without using a router. So, is there any possibility? perhaps I need some programs (MagicNet, WiPeer, ...)
Thank you!

Why don't you try the Windows-native Remote Desktop?

It is an easy way to access one computer from another on the same local network without the need to be connected to the Internet.

Here is more on Remote Desktop under Windows XP:
