LAN Communication

Can someone explain to me how I can communicate with another computer over a wireless LAN network. Suppose I want send a single byte such as the decimal number 43 and then have the receiving computer receive this byte. How would I go about doing this? Thanks for any help.

You will have to buy a WI-FI ROUTER & router is having access to broadband or DSL internet access, then you would be able to access internet and also can configure more than one user and define that as LAN.

I know how to connect to the internet. I want to be able to send raw data from one computer to another over Wi-Fi.

are you trying to make a HLL program for that ?
if so then it's essentially same as sending it to a wired computer bacause TCP/IP handles all lower level details...........

YOU JUST NEED TO DELIVER YOUR DATA TO APPROPRIATE FUNCTION OF AN APPROPRIATE CLASS IN THAT LANGUAGE.........

ummm ... how about a simple socket connection?

Java has a huge API reference for this

As far as Wireless LAN cocern you can go through any of the technology like
1)Bluetooth (limited distance)
2) Wireless LAAN 802.11
3) Wi- fi technolgy best suited
I think infrared will be better and cheap too,but how much data you want to send & receive????

But infrared have much more problems like speed is very slow as comparative to others.
yeah,thats why i mentioned at what rate data has to be send and how much?? with bluetooth its also complex procedure!!!
