This is due to Apple altering their Adhoc network capabilities with newer OSX versions. Adhoc use to be a very strong wireless network connection and it has evolved into a weakened but still functioning way to create a quick wireless network. With this diminished signal strength, we too have noted the same thing that you are experiencing. We suggest putting a small router into the setup and you should be fine.
