A basic peer network, which requires no networking knowledge or experience to set up, should meet the needs of most home users and small businesses. By default, a basic peer network is configured with the strongest available security (see How do I set up a basic peer network?).
Right-click the PeerNet icon in the Windows notification area (the area of your screen where the time is displayed), and then click Start Peer Network. Your peer network is automatically configured to use WPA2-Personal security with AES encryption, which together provide the most secure type of connection available and the most privacy.
In Peer Network Key, type a network key (passphrase) of your choosing in the space provided, and then click OK. The network key must be either 8 to 63 characters in length or exactly 64 characters using the numbers 0–9 and the letters a–f (letters can be uppercase or lowercase). Thereafter, if you stop your peer network and then start it again, you do not have to type the network key.
NOTE: You should use a different network key than the one you use to connect to your physical wireless router/AP.
Under WPS settings, click Use push button method to allow WPS devices to join your peer network using the push button method, or click Use PIN method to allow WPS devices to join your peer network using the PIN method.
NOTE: For a WPS device to be accepted when it tries to access your network using the PIN method, it must connect within the period of time that WPS devices are being accepted. Unless you click Stop Accepting a WPS Device (from the PeerNet icon menu), your peer network automatically stops accepting WPS devices approximately two minutes after you click Open.
