I'm trying to set up an Ad Hoc network with my Windows 7 PC (wired to internet) so that I can connect my Ipod to it. I set up an AdHoc network, named RPM. RPM became available as a network for my ipod to connect to, but I was unable to actuially connect. When I try to Change adapter settings to set it to "allow other devices to access this network", I get the error message "Error occured while internet connection Sharing was being enabled" (null).

any idea how to go forward?

Thanks

It is an acer aspire 5750z-4830. It does have wireless capabilities, It is connectied both wired and wirelessly to the internet actually. Im not sure on the router, I'm in a college dorm so the router isn't mine It's the schools. I can look into it if the info is necessary
