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.
