    This issue is regarding with p2p connectivity

    It seems that i cannot establish a connection in an adhoc infrastructure, i
    cannot ping any computer in the adhoc network. I used to play LAN games such
    as CS and i cannot connect to it.. But i can use my wireless device to browse
    the internet if i connect it to an access point.

    I also have another issue regarding it, i cannot connect to any p2p
    application such as limewire, kazaa , etc. Why does this happen? Is i because
    windows blocked p2p connection or is it because hardware or software error. I
    tried to reinstall the driver also the software utilities of the wireless
    device, but it doesn't work either.

    Can somebody help me please! Thx

  2. Hi
    There is No Ad-Hoc Infrastrucre Network.
    It is either Ad-HOC or Infrastructure. The typical Wireless connection is
    infrastructure. If you would like an Ad-Hoc connection between two computers
    both has to be configured to AD-Hoc independent form the regular Wireless
    As for p2p, log to the p2p application's site and look for instructions
    concerning port opening through Windows Firewall.

    Hi jack
    Im sorry , i meant i cant connect to a adhoc network not to an
    infrastructure, i already set my IP manually in the same subnet group so that
    my pc can be recognized by others but still i can't ping to the other
    computer in the adhoc network. Is it because windows blocked my connection to
    an adhoc network.

    For the P2P program , although i had turn of windows firewall i still cannot
    connect to the limewire network. Does an update in my windows block the
    connection to both P2P connection?

  4. Hi
    Windows does not block Ad-Hoc connection. If the Firewall is Off, p2p or
    other Internet related are Not blocked.
    Unfortunately in order`to further help you need to describe better your
    system, the Internet connection and how it is configured.

    I already fix the problem with the adhoc network, yesterday i fix it using
    the winsockxpfix patch, but is it normal if an adhoc connection is not stable
    because there is only 2 computer connected to it?

    For the limewire problem i still can't fix it, i use zone alarm firewall ,
    Wndows XP SP2 and i have an aztech DSL600EU modem router connected to a
    linksys wireless router wrt54g. My modem IP is and my wireless
    router IP is
