How do you connect to an ad-hock wireless network in Ubuntu 12.04?
I have two laptops, each running Ubuntu 12.04. On one, I've disabled Network Manager and I configured a WEP-encrypted ad-hoc wireless connection, which shows up in both
iwconfig show. On the other laptop, I'm running Network Manager, and it shows the SSID of the ad-hoc network, but selecting it does nothing.
I've read the wiki docs, which say to just "Click on the tray icon and you will see the ssid of the ad hoc network with the ad hoc icon next to it, click on it to connect."
The command-line instructions only seem to apply to creating the connection, not connecting to one. I'm not seeing any error messages. What else can I do?
