My laptop connects to my wireless router and also file sharing with my desktop works. I brought my laptop to my girlfriend's house, where we created a wireless ad hoc network on her desktop using a wireless usb network. She tells me this has worked with other laptops. My laptop seems to see the network, but it won't connect. It indicares "Connecting..." for about 30 seconds, and then that window disappears, but no connection is made. We have tried various option changes to network authentication and encryption to no avail. I have run out of ideas. Any suggestions?

Her desktop is running Vista. My laptop is running XP.

Please close this thread. The problem appears to be that my laptop's radio transceiver had been inadvertantly turned off.
