XP Host - Vista Client On Adhoc Network

Hi,

My first time on this forum and I bring a headache I hope you guys may
be able to relieve.
I've set up an adhoc network to connect my 2 pcs and all is not well.
My hardware is as follows:

_Host_pc_

Operating System - XP
Modem - BT Voyager 190 ADSL
Wireless Adapter - Linksys Wireless-G USB Adapter (WUSB54GS)

_Client_pc_

Operating System - Vista
Wireless Adapter - RT73 USB Wireless LAN Card

I am able to see the client pc on the host, along with it's shared
files. However, I am not able to access them (error message - network
path not found)
The client pc doesn't see the host at all.

Also, the client wireless adapter doesn't show in Network Connections
so am unable to configure.

Pcs are set up with same workgroup name.

Should any more information be required I'll be more than happy to
provide.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

This will generally be a problem with a personal firewall. Accessing shares,
knowing what shares are there, and knowing the address ("path not found") can
all be interfered with by personal firewalls.

http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/0...ther-help.html

There are Vista specific issues.
* Set the Network Location Type to "Private". This implies that your
computers are secure, behind a perimeter firewall or a NAT router, and opens the
personal firewall for file sharing.
* Check / set "Password protected sharing" (PPS). Disabling PPS is the
equivalent of enabling Simple File Sharing, in Windows XP.
* Setup shared folders and printers. If you enabled PPS, you should setup
access for individual users. If you disabled PPS, you setup access for "Guest"
or "Everyone".

And Windows general issues.
* Make sure that NetBT is Enabled consistently.
* Make sure that name resolution is consistently setup.

Re: XP Host - Vista Client On Adhoc Network

Reguarding firewall issues, that wasn't the problem as all firewalls
were disabled.

In order to see both pcs on the network I re-assigned ip addresses to
both adapters on the host pc by allowing automatic ip addressing.

Details as follows:

_Host_pc_

Local Area Connection - 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway - 192.168.0.1

Wireless Connection - 172.189.9.143
Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.255
Default Gateway - 172.189.9.143

_Client_pc_

Wireless Adapter - 169.254.222.217
Subnet Mask - 255.255.0.0

As previously stated, I can see and share files on both pcs though my
client pc shows the network as being unidentified. I cannot access the
internet on the client pc.

Can anyone help?

Your client computer doesn't have a default gateway. That's how you access the
Internet (or other networks).

Posting complete and unmunged "ipconfig /all" logs would be a big help here.

Re: XP Host - Vista Client On Adhoc Network

Yes, ICS is enabled on BLADESMAN but I'm unable to complete the Network
Setup Wizard.

I'm getting the error message :

Cannot complete the Network Setup Wizard
An error occurred during configuration of the network on this computer.

Configuration has automatically turned off ICS and firewalled the
connection.

OK, I'd bet that you haven't enabled ICS on BLADESMAN. Run the Network Setup
Wizard on BLADESMAN, and select
This computer connects directly to the Internet. The other computers on my
network connect to the Internet through this computer.

OK, your problem is now not Vista. Your problem is ICS, in the host running XP.

I'm going to suggest that you repost your problem in microsoft. public.
windowsxp. network_web , where you can hopefully get help from the Windows XP
experts. You'll probably have to re post a lot of duplicate information, and
some of the people there (like me) will have already seen you here, but it's
still the right thing to do.
