Hi all pls this is my question -

I connected two laptops both with wireless card enabled i made the connection via ad - hoc. i put an ip address of 192.168.0.1 as default gate way on both laptops so 192.168.0.2 on one laptop and 192.168.0.3 on the other laptop. they could communicate effectively.. i tried pinging from one laptop to the other and i got a reply... wen i then tried to access the other laptop tru workgroup using the back slash command it does not connect. it tells me that the device is not on the network (Something of that nature)...

now wat is causing the connectivity problem... since they are able to ping out...

pls give me idea someone.... i hope i was clear enough..

Few quick things.

Do you have windows firewall set up on the wireless interfaces... check that.

when you try and access the other machine are you using the name or IP.. if using the name.. try the ip and see how that goes.

Are both machines same version of windows? Which version are they?

Lastly, try disabling Data encryption.. there should be an option in the network/wireless tab.

I don't think you need to set a default gateway for the ad-hoc wireless because they are on the same segment.

I agree with toddwoo, check into the Windows Firewall. You can also make sure file sharing is enable and create a share to connect to.
