ok am just about to throw the towel in with this one!
what seems so simple is not.
I have three new laptops,im trying to set up a dead simple AD-HOC network,i have done so but i simply cant ping or see the other other client laptops,here are some steps ive done
tried DCHP and assigning static IPs on all 3 laptops,set network discovery to on on all laptops,set network to both private and public.also workgroup is the same and they all have unique names.
so i can connect to the network on all three laptops but no luck at all while trying to ping or view other laptops,all laptops are virus/spyware free.
would love to hear from anyone who knows something i dont.
