Created a network on my desktop computer in windows 7 in mode "Ad-hoc" and tried to connect to it with laptop in ubuntu 14.04. Every time I tried to connect, identification status continues for some time and than ubuntu breaks off the connection. I had the message after disconnection from avahi-daemon about .local domain but when I managed with it nothing changed (but the message doesn't appear any more). PS. The network in "Infrastructure" mode works just fine.

Happened to me once, fixed it by switching the "Ad-Hoc" mode into "Infrastructure" mode. Try that. :)

Edit: "Ad-Hoc" mode only works for the personal user account that created the network in first place. Upon switching to ubuntu, it becomes read as a different user, even if it's actually the same computer. So word of advice, keep it on infrastructure.
