My ubuntu 11.04 works fine with wired networks...when I try to connect it to a hidden wireless adhoc network, it says connection established.But I am not able to ping it nor connect to it. Any idea?

Is this adhoc one that you have setup or is it somebody elses your trying to connect to? Communication problems could arise from either your ip address and the ip address of the adhoc network your trying to connect to not being on the same subnet or that certain packets are being refused by non trusted connections
