Ad-hoc not connecting automatically

    Hi!

    I set up ICS as per this aricle :
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/bowman_02april08.mspx

    (PPPoE connection, 2 WLAN adapters in ad-hoc mode, PPPoE has ICS turned
    on)


    It works, but the server (the one with the internet connection) does
    not join the ad-hoc network automatically. I have to clik on "View
    Avaliable Wireless Networks" and manually connect to the ad-hoc network
    (which is visible and connects without problems, just not
    automatically). I use the Window Wireless setup on both PCs and not the
    vendor utility. I have set my ad-hoc network to "automatic", but it
    just does not work. ( except sometimes :-( ).

    This is very annoying, because someone has to walk to the "server" and
    connect manually.

    Is there a solution, idea ?

    Regards,
    David

    PS: One PC is running Windows XP , the other (the server) Windows 2003
    Enterprise
    The WLAN adapters are : Asus WL-160G (USB) and SMC 2862W-G (USB)
