    hey
    in my last post nothing was working
    i have no idea what i've done but now it's working

    so i have a PC with a network adapter and a wireless adapter, and a
    laptop with a wireless adapter.
    i have no router
    and i'm trying to connect between the PC and the laptop
    (i have to say that the network adapter and the wireless adapter in the
    pc are assigned to two different IP addresses and are set to subnet mask
    255.255.255.0 no gateway to dsn are entered.
    also the laptop wireless card has it's own ip.
    now the 2 computers DO connect. it says connected.
    but it's not really connected. i can do nothing between them.. can't
    see it in the workgroup, can't ping it.. nothing.
    i'm using a AD-HOC connection between them with a WEP security (it
    doesn't work also if i put no security on the connection)

    any ideas?

    ignore the reference to internet connection(ICS).
