Question Wifi Not Detecting

I have a wifi connection in my PC. I can use this on my samsung wave without any problem.

But my galaxy ace is not detecting this accesspoint. I put the SSID and password manually. But it is showing Not in Range.

But I can enable Wifi AP in my samsung wave and it is working on the galaxy.

Why it is not showing/detecting my PC Wifi(ad-hoc)?

Welcome to the forums!
Android can't connect to ad-hoc network (can, but it has to be rooted and system files has to be adjusted), normal Wi-Fi connection has to be shared from Windows as Wi-Fi APN. It can be done with Connectify (on Windows 7) :
Connectify for Windows - Turn your Laptop or Smartphone into a Secure Wi-Fi Hotspot

Need help on wi/fi connection
