I'm planning to do more experiments on collaborating with multiple laptops..
especially laptops with Wireless LAN support.

I would like to use OSC to communicate between the laptops.
(I might be experimenting with ChucK or Puredata first)

How do I do that with a linux laptop?
Especially if I won't use an extra wireless router.

I read about DHCP server, is it one thing I need here?
And I'm on Gnome on Ubuntu Feisty. When I click at the wireless networking Icon,
there's an option "Create New Wireless Network"
Can this simply work for what I need?

Thank you ^_^

Sounds like what you want is a wireless network operating in "ad hoc" mode, that is without an access point (or a wireless router or a WAP). Normally the access point would be the DHCP server, what it does is that it ensures all parties that join in the communications will get a unique IP address. In an ad hoc network there would not be a DHCP server I guess, but it's not too hard to set IP addresses manually. Just use 192.168.1.n where n is a unique number for each computer, a netmask of 255.255.255.0 should be used with that address range.

Can't really help you with the details, maybe this would be a good starter?

Thanks for the information for me to start!
I'll tell more about my experiments and set up after this and if it succeeds or fails lol ^_^

I'm also a networking newbie.
