"You should be aware that the ad-hoc part of the 802.11 standard (wireless) is very poorly implemented by some wireless network device manufactures. Thus it is not uncommon at all to encounter two laptops which are simple incapable of communication with each other over an ad-hoc network.

I work with ad-hoc networks almost daily, I'm studying networks and distributed systems. And from experience with many poor ad-hoc implementations, we always make a point of using the same 802.11 hardware for all units we want to communicate in an ad-hoc network."

Turn off firewall on both computers. If that works configure them to allow the connection and turn them back on.
