Are you trying to create a LAN between your Mac and PC wirelessly? Are both wireless capable, and not connected to any other wireless networks? Have you successfully connected your PC to your Mac's shared connection? I've tried the setup I think you're attempting before, and its been nothing but problems. Perhaps you should consider investing in a wireless router, they can be had very cheap these days.

Do both computer open web-pages fine? If the PC does your USB adapter is working fine and isn't the problem. Are you trying to access files on your Mac or PC? If your sharing from you Mac, than you need to enable Windows Sharing. You may need to take an extra step to enable specific Mac OS accounts to be accessible from Windows Sharing.

To access Windows folders on your Mac, right click on the folder on your PC, click properties, and then enter the sharing tab. Enable sharing.

If neither of these work, than you may need to make adjustments to your firewall on your PC, Mac (if you enabled it) or possibly your router.
