 Hello ppls,

 I want to be able to transfer data from one computer to another/access the other computer using some sort of wireless device but I am not sure of what to get. I don't mean the general setting up a network through a wireless router because I want to do this without them and outside of the internet.

Is there anything through a regular wireless card with program or perhaps a bluetooth chip that I can get to do this? Also, how far is too far, if there is something to be able to do this transfer? Because my 2 computers are in seperate rooms.

 Thanks much.

The way I would go about it is simply remove the hard drive from one of the computers and install it in the other computer. If you're not comfortable with that, consider getting an external hard drive then use it as a vehicle to transfer stuff from one to another.

 I have all that available already but none the less wanted to know about a possible wireless way. Thanks though.

What you want is a NAS [Network Attached Storage] kit which has a wireless option. Should run about $150-300 depending upon the features you want.

So basically this let's me hook up any harddrive in there and has wireless in there that I can connect to just the same as if I was connecting to a router and can do so from multiple computer looking at it as though another external HD right?

Thanks much since this is pretty much what I was looking for though not exactly since it means buying something else externally but it seems the only solution. So again, Thank You digitaldd.

 Yes that is the idea, some NAS devices work very well with Windows, Linux or OS X's networking others require a client which must be installed on the computer. If it requires a special client be installed it probably won't work with a Mac or with Linux.

No Problem.
