it's very easy ,
the first you right- click local area network then you choose tab sharing check "allow other network user to....." then you selct home network connection "wirless "
the second you create add hoc , i think you know how do that
the third win xp connect adhoc on win 7
it's done

If you just have a network cable connecting 2 machines together using their network adapters said cable must be a crossover cable. Are you using a crossover cable?

Not necessarily true. Some Ethernet interfaces have built in Automatic MDIX Configuration which eliminates the need for crossover cables. I have been able to hook up my computers with cheap plain CAT cables because of that. However, if your computer is old, then it might not have automatic MDIX.
