How do I setup a wireless ad-hoc connection between two laptops (both on windows XP) for a lan party?

I've done what the tutorials on the web directed but for some reason, I can't created/host a game on one laptop that the other could detect/join. I also do not see the other computer under Network Places or "view workgroup computers" even though both are in the same workgroup. I also cannot ping the other computer, but both laptops say they've connected to the ad-hoc network.
