    I'm creating an ad hoc network to connect my desktop (running Windows 7) with a friend laptop (running XP). So I set the network and in the wireless networks list of the laptop it appear with signal strength "Excellent" but once it connect to the network the signal strength drops to "Very Low". Any ideas where the problem may be? Thank you in advance.

    Make sure you have the latest firmware and drivers for the lappy or dongle and other wireless devices.

    Turn off power savings and set the transmission (power output) on both to 100%.

    And, if it is usb on any devices, go to the hub device and uncheck the let usb turn off device.

    See if that helps. :)
    Grasshopper says thanks.
