How to connect to a computer to computer network?

I was away from home and tried to piggyback on someone elses wireless

I found two "Unsecured computer-to-computer networks". One was even
named "Free Public WiFi". Signal strength to both was good (4 bars and 3

When I tried to connect, Windows took a long time and then said I was
Disconnected. However, in the text it said I WAS connected. In actual
fact I was NOT.

What's the deal with these computer-to-computer networks? How do you

One strange thing is that when I got back home those two networks still
show up! I've tried refreshing the network list but can't get rid of
them. The "normal" networks (not computer-to-computer) have changed to
reflect the new location. What is happening?
