Can't connect to ad-hoc network

I just installed a wireless network card and am trying to connect to an adhoc network on another desktop that has a usb network adapter. I have previously connected to that same desktop and network using my laptop, but my desktop will not connect to it. It tries to connect for about a full minute, then it indicates that it is not connected. However, in the description lower in that window, it says "You are currently connected to this network." Any attempt to use the internet, however, fails, so it isn't really connected. Also, on the taskbar at the bottom, it shows the network as disconnected (red "x").
