I've 2 pcs running XP Pro and each has a wireless card. I've successfully set
up the ad-hoc network on the host and have connected using the client. Each
PC is in a common workgroup.

2. XP Host - Vista client - ad-hoc wireless network

On the Vista client, can see the "gateway" and am able to use the internet

connected to the ad-hoc network.
On an XP client, I have no such problem; can access all shared folders and
can also access the ICS.
I have 3 pcs; desktop host with XP, laptop client with XP and laptop client
with Vista. This last one is the problem.
I've read all the help on not seeing folders, at the Vista end and seem to
have everything correct. All SPs are loaded uptodate on the XP host.
