Have two desktops networked wirelessly, both with Intel Anypoint II USB adapters. Using in "ad hoc" or "peer to peer" mode (no access point or gateway). Problem is that when both computers are in use at the same time there is often a noticeable drag (including temporary freezing) on both systems, usually when one is accessing the internet and the other has some sort of relatively tame (i.e. not resource intensive) computer game. There seems to be less of a problem when both computers are accessing the internet and no problem at all when only one computer is being used. Both systems are reasonably powerful (Celeron 466 w/256mb running Windows 98 first edition and Celeron 900 with 192mb running Windows ME). Using the internet sharing software from Intel bundled with the product. I should also mention that the "slower" machine is actually serving as the server for the internet sharing. Should I switch them and see if that helps? Intel says it shouldn't make a difference. Or is this what I get when I don't use a gateway? I am about to add a notebook to the setup so I would like to fix this problem if I can. All help is appreciated. Thanks.
