GX7 Connect to netbook with wifi?

I easily connect my GX7 to my wireless network at home, but now I'm on the road and can't connect to my netbook that is not on a network. Anyone know if this is doable and source of some step by step instructions? Using windows 7

Thanks

If your netbook can operate over WiFi it should be able to see your GX7 as a network it can attach to. I assume you have Panasonic's WiFi software (on my iPad it's called Image App). Make sure the GX7's WiFi broadcasting is turned on...if so the blue LED next to the WiFi button on the back will be lit. You'll need the password provided by the camera, of course.

Ok, I assumed since the laptop "sees" other networks, without additional software, it would see the gx7 when wifi is on, but it doesn't. I will checkout the panasonic sw and see if it supports win 7

Thanks!

My iPad can see the GX7 by itself, but it needs the app to actually control the camera and/or pull photos from it.
