Cannot see Ad-Hoc network I just created in Windows 7 - 64bit

I just created an Ad-Hoc to connect an ipad to my laptop (having issues with bluetooth).  After connecting and syncing some data, I can't see the Ad-Hoc network again (to delete it or modify it).  Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

So it was working briefly then never again? Any firewalls on? Try restarting the devices?

It worked but after a reboot the Ad-Hoc wireless connection on my laptop is gone.  Does that mean that it was deleted or is it just hidden.  If it's gone, that's fine.  I just didn't want an unsecure Ad-Hoc wireless connection on my laptop...

If you take a look at your prefered wireless network list, you would see the ad-hoc connection if it still existed. If you don't see it (or your device can't find it) then its definitely gone.
