Hey ferrer_cl,

On both your computer, and your brother's laptop, please do the following:
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, type ipconfig /all > C:\ipconfig.txt
  • Navigate to your C: drive and open the text file ipconfig.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
This will hopefully let us see what's going on :)

Thanks,
- Dan

Was the ipconfig run on the host machine, or the client? If it was on the host machine, ICS isn't enabled. If it was on the client machine, the IP schema is incorrect.

On the host machine (I believe that is your XP computer), please follow the steps listed in this article to setup ICS -- NOTE: for the time being, don't setup security / encryption; let's get your ad-hoc network working first. Also, ensure your XP machine is using DHCP, and not a static IP before following that guide.

On your client machine (Vista?), you shouldn't need to have a static IP setup; re-enable DHCP by selecting Obtain an IP Address automatically and Obtain DNS Server address automatically. You should be able to connect to the ad-hoc network by simply looking for it in your Available Network list and connecting to it; everything else should be automatic.

Let me know how you go with the article.

Dear dan
first of all thanks for your help and i want to apologize for taking too long to answer.
i tried your suggestion but did not work out. but after struggling with the adapter i finally got it working.
even though i downloaded the latest driver from d-link page wich suposedly was compatible with vista, i only got it working "upgrading" my pc back to xp.
thanks for all your help and patience. :)
bye.
