    Hello,
    All you need is to setup an AD-HOC network on your computer.
    You can do it easily by
    1.Go to "Start"
    2. Type "Ad-Hoc"
    3.Click on "setup an adhoc network" which comes as search result.
    Now simply follow the steps of the wizard.
    (make sure that your wi-fi is switched on)
    Happy gaming!!!:-)

    Hello,
    you can create an ad-hoc connection.
    goto start menu type ad-hoc
    setup ad-hoc without any password.
    after completion it will appear in your network connections(if your wi-fi is turned on).
    double click on your created network....it will show waiting for users
    tell your friends to search for your network and then connect to it...
    when your friends are connected its status will change to connected.
    Now you can play any game on LAN like cs,nfs etc..

    If there 's some problem jus turn off your windows firewall till you want to play and turn it on again after finishing the game play..
    Enjoy....:-)

    Hi dere,
    The answer to your is given there self on MICROSOFT website.
    You can have a look from here.
    The answer there is in detail such as:


    • Open Network and Sharing Center by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type network, and then click Network and Sharing Center.

    • Click Set up a new connection or network.

    • Click Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, click Next, and then follow the steps in the wizard.
    Notes

    • If one or more of the networked computers is joined to a domain, each person using the network will need to have a user account on that computer to see and access shared items on it.

    • If the networked computers aren't joined to a domain, but you want to require people to have a user account on your computer to access shared items, turn on password-protected sharing in Advanced sharing settings.

    • An ad hoc network is automatically deleted after all users disconnect from the network or when the person who set up the network disconnects and goes out of range of the other users of the network, unless you choose to make it a permanent network when you create it.

    • If you share your Internet connection, Internet connection sharing (ICS) will be disabled if you disconnect from the ad hoc network, you create a new ad hoc network without disconnecting from the old ad hoc network for which you enabled ICS, or you log off and then log back on (without disconnecting from the ad hoc network).

    • If you set up an ad hoc network and share your Internet connection, and then someone logs on to the same computer by using Fast User Switching, the Internet connection will still be shared, even if you didn't intend to share it with that person.


    Hope this will help....
