wifi adhoc issue

so i got ethernet cable on my pc, I also got a wifi dongle. since i use the cable already, i wanted to switch the dongle to be ad-hoc, so i get tutorial and set up win 7 np , says ad-hoc is ready to go and is waiting for users.. but then I head out to my cellphone and scan for wifi, but network not found!?! , np google says not all dongles can do that... order some more junk on fleebay.

BUT the strange thing now is that i was setting up a new raspberry pi, when i noticed that the adhoc network is showing there and connecting ok!?! so its not a bad dongle? but then why cant phone find it?

Some phones won't connect to connections deemed a security risk (e.g. ad hoc networks). Apple, for example.
