Well, I have some trouble with my ad hoc network. I have followed the guides on various sites, created an ad hoc network that is working
but the problem comes down to ICS. I am unable to connect to internet on my laptop via ad hoc.
On my PC I have a static IP, on the wired connection I have turned on ICS to be shared to my wireless card. In wlan TCP/IP (after turning ICS on) I get 192.168.137.1 as my IP-address that I then changed to 192.168.0.1, 255.255.255.0 (empty in other fields)
I connect to the ad hoc network just fine, but there is "no network access". Laptop configuration; TCP/IP 192.168.0.2, 255.255.255.0 GW 192.168.0.1, DNS 192.168.0.1
No ping to either computer is going through. Maybe it has something to do with my static IP address? I have also tried the following: turning firewalls off on both computers, changed advanced sharing options back and forth etc. with no success (observe that surfing the web from my laptop worked once, but I just can't remember which configuration made it work
Does anyone know where the problem lies? Firewall, network and sharing settings, TCP/IP conf.?
