    Re: Wifi connection

    In exactly the same way as you establish a wifi connection between two computers NOT running sql server 2008 express edition

    Network connectivity is nothing to do with SQL server.

    What OS are the computers running?
    Do you have a WAP or is it an "ad hoc" network?
    Do you have a DHCP server?

        Re: Wifi connection

        You will need to make sure both computers can see each other
        What OS are they?
        Do they have the same workgroup name?
        Do they get IPs by DHCP from the modem or router?
        Can you ping one from the other?

          Explain your network in explicit detail. Are the two computers in the same building? Are they already on WiFi? Do you have a wireless router?
