Windows 7: Cant use an Ad Hoc network when an internet connection is being shared

Cant use an Ad Hoc network when an internet connection is being shared

I have having a random problem with my computer (it's an Acer laptop) in regards to sharing internet connections. I have never had a problem with creating or connecting to an Ad Hoc network when the internet connection was being shared but after I had made an update to the graphics card (and possibly another update was carried through at the same time, i'm not entirely sure) i haven't been able to do it.

I can't select the option to share the internet connection when i'm setting up the network like i have always been able to do and when i try to connect to a network which is sharing it's internet connection, i get an error in regards to the adapter not working correctly but when a network from the same computer is made without an internet connection i can connect just fine and i don't understand what the problem is.

I don't know if this is relevant or not but i also bought a bluetooth usb stick so that i can use my wireless headphones with my laptop and it does have wireless networking options but i disabled them when i was trying to solve the problem.

My wireless adapter is an Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Network Adapter.

Welcome to the Seven Forums. Sorry that no one has been able to respond. I do not have a way to test what you are setting up - but could you please ensure that the Internet Connection Sharing Service is running?

Right click on Computer and select Manage.

Once the window comes up, drill down to the services.
