Windows 7: Need help setting up ad hoc wifi connection

Need help setting up ad hoc wifi connection

Hi. I'm trying to set up an ad hoc connection with my ipod touch so i can use midi over wifi. I keep getting this message: An error occured while ICS was being enabled (null). I did get the network setup and the ipod receiving the wifi signal but could not access the internet. I've tried again but i got the message 'Windows could not set up a network'. The wireless connection in network connections also has a red cross underneath it.

I've tried a few times and had mixed results but no actual internet access on the ipod and several times when the wireless network was connected i lost actual internet access. I've tried enabling ICS but no dice. Any ideas or do i need a router? Thanks!

Anyone? I have no idea why i can't enable sharing. It's probably something really simple. I tried bridging the connection between my cable and wifi which seemed to work but i could not get access on the ipod. Wifi also seemed to disable it intermittently as well. I assume the missing link is ics but how do i enable it? Thanks.

I've tried setting up a wireless connection several times and i keep getting the message 'Windows could not turn on internet connection sharing'. Also there is no option to auto connect. I can post the diagnostics results if it will help. Maybe it's not possible and i need to get a router but i need to know if the issue is with windows 7 or my wifi card. Cheers.

first of all u need to make sure ur wireless drivers are up-to-date. then set a new ad hoc network. it would be the best if u do it using usb flash. then on your wireless device in 'network and sharing centre' set system 'ip' and 'dns' as automatic and reboot. it worked for me
