Wireless Adhoc Network between Ubuntu 11.10 Laptop and a Desktop with Windows XP
I have on my laptop (Asus X51L) Ubuntu 11.10 and a Desktop with Windows XP (with a TP-LINK Wireless Adaptor - TL-VN422G).
I created a DSL connection with username and password, at PPP setings tab I checked at Echo - Send PPP echo packets; at IPv4 Settings tab, at Method - Automatic(PPPoE).
The wireless connection I ceated from "Edit connection" -> Wireless Tab -> Add;
Connection name: ubuntu-1110
- SSID: ubuntu-1100
- Mode: Adhoc
- Band: Automatic
- Channel: default
- BSSID: blank
- Device MAC Address: blank
- Cloned MAC Address: blank
- MTU: automatic
IPv4 Settings Tab:
- Method: Shared to other computers
- I checked IPv4 addressing for this connection to complete
IPv6 Sttings Tab:
- Method: Ignore
Wireless Security Tab:
- Security: WEP 40/128-bit key (Hex or ASCII)
AND CLICK SAVE
On my desktop I searched my new wireless connection, I successfully connected, but I cant access some sites like: Facebook and a few more. Google, Wikipedia works.
Do you have any suggestion?

Did you try forcing DNS server on your Windows XP machine?
You can try setting DNS to 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52.
