    Question How to connect two Ubuntu computers via wifi (without router)?

    Hello,

    Current situation
    When I'm on my home network I connect my two laptops to the router which assigns internal ip-addresses (like 192.168.1.67 for example). If I now want to make a connection to the other laptop I can just connect to that internal ip-address (from within a program I have).

    Desired situation
    If I now take away the router then I'm left with two independent laptops with wifi enabled. I now want them to somehow connect to eachother. The problem is that if I look through the available networks I don't see the other computer as "being a network". I know I won't have internet, the only objective is for the two laptops to be able to talk to eachother. So my question: how do I connect the two laptops to eachother so that they both have an internal ip-address assigned?

    All tips are welcome!
