Hey,

This seems to be a common problem but none of the fixes I've found have worked for me so far. I'm using Windows 7, trying to set up ad hoc wireless, but I can't seem to edit my connection sharing, as there is no such tab.

ipconfig:

Thing is though all the tutorials for ad hoc eventually have ICS as one of the steps. Up to those points, it won't work, nothing is able to connect.

The wireless connection on both machines should be set for a dynamic connection. Then define the ad-hoc wireless on each machine and try to connect. If you get a choice in Windows 7 or Vista designate the network as Home or Private. When you think there is a connection you then have to confirm that they are actually communicating. Here is one way to do that.

To open a Command Window: Start - Run – cmd (command in 98SE) – OK
(if Run not on Vista’s or 7’s Start menu, just type cmd in the Search box)

To determine a computer's IP address: open a Command Window and type
ipconfig

Now for some troubleshooting:

1. On each PC open a Command window and type
ping IPofOther (where IPofOther is the IP address of the other PC)

Do you get Replies, or do you get packets lost?
