    How to transfer file PC to PC by Wireless LAN?
    I have 2 PC, one desktop, one Laptop
    but I can't set them in same work group, lap top has to be in same domain as my work office.

    Is there a way to transfer files between them? (by WLAN/LAN cable)

    PC links with wireless router
    Laptop has built-in wireless card

    Now I'm using flash drive to transfer files between them.

    I don't know much about network [​IMG]

    What is different between Domain and Workgroup?

    because Laptop's Domain : office
    But I don't know how to set PC to use Domain, It only say work group

    Well, you probably don't have to change your workgroup and/or domain. On your home computer (which I will assume you have administrative access to), make a folder somewhere and call it NETWORK, or something, and share it.

    Search "File Sharing" in your favourite search engine and you'll be on your way.

    EDIT:

    While the quick way to share a folder is to RIGHT-CLICK the folder and click on PROPERTIES. In the new window that opens, click on the SHARING tab.

    Click on "Share This Folder" and click in the "Permissions" button. I think the default user is "EVERYONE". Make sure "EVERYONE" is highlighted and at the bottom where it says "Permissions for Everyone" click on ALLOW for "Full Control". You should know have three check-marks under the "ALLOW" Column. Click OK to save the changes.

    To access your computer from your laptop, make sure both systems are connected to the same network.

    On the laptop:
    1. Open the START menu and open "MY NETWORK PLACES" (I'm assuming Windows XP)
    2. Open "Entire Network"
    3. Open "Microsoft Windows Network"
    4. Open "Workgroup" (your workgroup may have a different name if you have changed it)
    5. You should see your computer name in this next part, open that and you should see the folder that you shared.
    6. Open the folder that you shared and copy whatever you want into it.
