    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to setup a Ad-hoc system in my house between my Windows XP computer and my Aluminium Macbook. I followed the guide that microsoft has at this link to setup wireless internet connection sharing:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/adhoc.mspx

    The problem is, The macbook will not detect this under the available networks. Is there any way i can get my XP machine to share it's wireless connection with the Macbook (Besides getting a wireless router)?

    Just bought a TEW-652BRP but would still love to know if it is possible to accomplish the task using the method above? :)
