    I have a XP machine running internet using ethernet cable. Went through the whole process of activating ICS on the ethernet network, creating a new ad-hoc network. The thing is after this, I am not able to find the new network either from my macbook or my iphone.

    What might be the problem? any suggestions?

    Are you trying to make it so that your Mac connects to the internet wirelessly via this computer?

    Please further explain.

    no problem anymore.. got it solved... had manually assigned an ip address to the wireless adapter on my windows machine. As mac addressing system is different, it didnt work... working great now.. But there is still the issue of my macbook not detecting my ethernet cable at all

    Try with another cable. I have a couple cables that don't work with my macbook but are fine on other machines.

    AdHoc Mac and Win XP

    Hello, I'm trying to make MacBook connects to the internet wirelessly via my Win XP Desktop. The desktop use LAN cable to connect to internet. I set up an adhoc connection with wireless card in my desktop and disable any encryption to make it easier for the first step, but the MacBook can't detect the signal from desktop (at the same time, the MacBook can detect wireless signal of other router). Is there any setting that I have to modify before Mac can read the adhoc signal from Win XP desktop?
