How to transfer files without a wireless router

It's possible to use a macbook or powerbook or any computer that has built-in wireless network card to connect to MultiTrack, even without a wireless router. The following instructions are for OSX with an AirPort.

Use Network Preferences to create a network:

Or if you already have "Show AirPort status in menu bar" you can create a network from the menu bar:
