I just got a DELL STUDIO XPS Laptop which runs on Vista.

I have established an ad hoc computer to computer network with another laptop

The ad hoc wireless connection shows that both laptops are connected to the "C-Print" software that we mutually use.

However, when I go to connect to a common server we are unable to connect.

When I run "ipconfig" it shows "Media Disconnected"

There is a little "Tower" icon in the middle of the DELL laptop above the numbers on the keyboard. That is turned "ON" so I do not know why the ipconfig shows that the Media is "NOT Connected."

Could somebody please help me on this as I need to use this ad hoc connection at work?

Thank you

I would contact your work IT people, and see if they know the answer. There could be custom settings that need to be in place before you can connect.
