MadeOke, YOU'RE gonna love this. Same problem, to correct it (daily) I start my msn messenger. I basically think it is a quirk in AdHoc
networking, that should be resolved with the 1st beta.

But wait! Ad-hoc? isn't a connection between any wireless device and router called as infrasturucture?

Ad-Hoc is a connection between 2 or more computers without a router

Right, it is a connection to the internet using a go between computer. I'm using Windows 8DP, for my server (Hardwired connection)and Belkin USB Adapter for my PC that doesn't have built in wireless. Shouldn't be a problem. as long as you used the settings supplied with your Wireless NiC. BUT!! You do need a PoP (Point of Presence) and NOT an email POP (Post Office Protocol) In my case my laptop has built-in wireless. Now on your hard wired computer, just make sure to turn on wireless services in control panel.
