Alrighty...I have a desktop and a laptop that I have networked wirelessly Ad-Hoc. They connect and grab the IP and MAC adresses but for some reason htey don't want to share internet or files. Like in status i get packets sent:289 received: 2. Yes, I did set the dial up connection for sharing.

I have looked through everything and it looks fine. No encryption etc. I killed Zone Alarm and Windows Firewall too. My last idea is that since the desktop has Win XP Home SP1, and I haven't updated it in months...the laptop has Win XP home SP2...haven't updated since I got it in December, maybe SP2 is screwing something over.

Any ideas?
