Ad-hoc network: Can't reconnect after disconnect
I'm having a little problem with my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (Laptop 1) ad-hoc networking. I have a spare laptop running on XP Pro SP2 (Laptop 2) acting a wireless hotspot to braodcast internet in my house.
Whenever my Windows 7 (Laptop 1) disconnects from the ad-hoc network, I can't seem to reconnect. I need Laptop 2 to disconnect then reconnect to the network before I can get Laptop 1 to rejoin the network successfully.
Previously, I was running Windows Vista on Laptop 1 and had no such problem. I could connect and reconnect without any hicks. This problem only occured upon upgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
Any help here? Thanks.
