I have tried ad-hoc but that only allows the Mac to connect to the PC, not the PC to the Mac.
Does anyone know how to do this?
hi, i have the same thing, and after an hour, i was able to connect. i had to go into the advanced settings on the card itself, and one of the properties is called SSID and I set that to the SSID of my network.
system properties -> device manager -> right click your wireless card and select properties -> advanced tab -> SSID
i am not at home, so i cannot verify that is exactly where i found it, and after browsing ten thousand properties windows, rebooting my airport 100 times, i cant recall exactly when/where i found it =)
only at that point did it actually connect. the only problem i have now is that it randomly disconnects me which closes my vpn, and any other application that wants a continuous connection.
ill check to see what settings i have on my airport station, but i think i just have WEP and MAC filtering enabled.
