I have been using a Windows XP ad-hoc wireless network to connect my Macbook to the internet. Everything was working fine until after a restart of the XP machine, the network stopped appearing in the "Choose a wireless network" screen. It does not show up as an available network on the Macbook as well.

But when I try to create a new network it shows me the network name. Creating a new network does not work either.

Are you sure your wireless services are functioning ok?

You can check this by running services.msc from the run box and check if the Wlansvc service is running. Restarting the service should solve your problem.

Please try the following on your XP machine if the service is allready running
