Every time I try to connect to my ad hoc network on another computer, it connects, shows unidentified network fails to establish a network connection between them. Any ideas?

    How have you set up your network, which OS are you using, is it wireless or wired? Is it through a hub, switch, router, wifi direct, one wire to another?
