Windows 7: Challenge connecting two W7 computers in Ad Hoc Wireless Network

Challenge connecting two W7 computers in Ad Hoc Wireless Network

Hi Everyone,

I am attempting to setup an Ad Hoc Wireless Network between two Windows 7 computers. On my Desktop Computer I have created the actual network as per the screen shots below -









The end result is an Ad Hoc network available through my Desktop Computer -



However even though the network is seen as available from the laptop, when a connection is attempted there is an error -





A few additional points -
  • I have tried dhcp & manually setting the I.P. address on both computers (with the same result)
  • Both computers belong to the same Workgroup
  • Both have file sharing enabled
  • Both have Network Discovery enabled
  • I chose no security to rule out encryption

If anybody has any idea of what I am missing here can you please share?

Kind Regards

Davo
