Ad hoc wireless network

When I try to View workgroup computers on the host computer I get a window "Workgroup not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network source. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permission. The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."
On the client computer when I view workgroup computers the host computer appears but when I try to open it I get a similar message including "The network path was not found".
I have McAfee internet security on the host computer - could this be the problem?
Can anyone help, please?

No joy yet - can anyone else suggest what I need to do? Disabling firewall does not help.

Computers are set to share. How do I give the drives permission to access the network?
