Tags: Configuration Wireless Network Firewalls P2P Wireless Networking Last response: January 7, 2011 11:13 PM in Wireless Networking Share MikeRuf December 29, 2010 1:18:32 PM I'm sharing a 3G connection from my laptop to my IPAD over a wireless peer-to-peer network, using the method described here: http://www.brighthub.com/computing/windows-platform/articles/7785.aspx. I have to turn off my Windows firewall to get it to work. Is there a way to add an exception instead?
