I just want to setup adhoc network using the wireless card that came with the box but I'm having a hard time getting it up. I have gone through a lot of posts about wireless troubleshooting but nothing has solved it. Left clicking the network manager tray icon always says wireless network is disconnected. "Enable Wireless" is checked.
