Make sure your mobile device has support for the Ad Hoc network connection mode.

Please find additional information and troubleshooting notes at Microsoft's website: Microsoft Windows 7: Setup Ad Hoc Network

Once you've click create the ad-hoc network button, you should simultaneously scan and connect to this network from your mobile device. Since most android-based network doesn't support ad-hoc connections, you could also try to type "netsh wlan start hostednetwork" in command prompt to share your connection, which create an infrastructure network rather than ad-hoc network.
