You dont need a router or ad hoc just get your self a wireless card pcmcia or usb;install ur software for it and in minutes youll be viewing wireless networks.you can use ur own or other networks near by.these will be unsecured networks.
if you want to use your own secure network you need to configure your own internet security key for you and any others to access via wireless.
unsecure is fine it just means that no security restrictions are config.
by default your wireless enables the source to shut down connection so if you use another network you can disable this in network properties.if you use your own network it makes really no odds cos youre in control anyway.
people on wireless access your network only not your computer unless you config otherwise and even then you only use shared folders.

Why does connecting to an ad-hoc network disconnect the shared mobile broadband connection?


You can be connected to two signals at one time, if I understand your statement. My question is, why is your laptop automatically connecting to a Ad-Hoc network? Your wireless adapter Intel Wireless 3945A/B/G,settings should be scrutinized. Perhaps this will help:http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/wireless/pro3945abg

Tip

Set up a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network


An ad hoc network is a temporary connection between computers and devices used for a specific purpose, such as sharing documents during a meeting or playing multiple-player computer games. You can also temporarily share an Internet connection with other people on your ad hoc network, so those people don’t have to set up their own Internet connections. Ad hoc networks can only be wireless, so you must have a wireless network adapter installed in your computer to set up or join an ad hoc network.

Click to open Connect to a Network.

Click Set up a connection or network.

Click Set up an ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, click Next, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

Notes
If one or more of the networked computers is joined to a domain, you need to have a user account on that computer to see and access shared items on it.

If the networked computers are not joined to a domain, but you want to require people to have a user account on your computer for access to shared items, turn on password protected sharing in Network and Sharing Center.

To turn on password protected sharing
Click to open Network and Sharing Center.

Under Sharing and Discovery, if password protected sharing is off, click the arrow button to expand the section, click Turn on password protected sharing, and then click Apply. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

An ad hoc network is automatically deleted after all users disconnect from the network or when the person who set up the network disconnects and goes out of range of the other users of the network, unless you choose to make it a permanent network when you create it.

If you share your Internet connection, Internet connection sharing (ICS) will be disabled if you disconnect from the ad hoc network, you create a new ad hoc network without disconnecting from the old ad hoc network for which you enabled ICS, or you log off and then log back on (without disconnecting from the ad hoc network).

If you set up an ad hoc network and share your Internet connection, and then someone logs on to the same computer by using Fast User Switching, the Internet connection will still be shared, even if you didn't intend to share it with that person.

I hope you all found this information useful and helpful.

I cannot set up an ad hoc network.. i also cannot connect to an ad hoc network with WPA security type.. it says that the capability of my network adapter does not match the requirement of this...


Recent computer devices are wireless compartibilbles least requiring network adaptors to establish. Ascertain the computers recent innovations also from where enabling the Wi-Fi features capturing available peripherals. For example, ascertain that another device from where networking requires establishment has wireless feature from where computer recognizes. Where each device are wireless compatible would recognize requiring passes to communicate with network structures. In a situation that one of the device has password sets, would require ascertain what entry passes makes connectivity. For example, networked computer already established requires verifying from network administrator to capture another device on the structures. Also, condition where the computer devices are prior innovations would require modems or adaptor devices or routers to complement the network structure or signal sharing. Such a situation requires ascertain the host computers as the administration point from where passwords are distributed to each device peripherals.

How do i connect my dsixl to the internet


Hi,
This is just a general guide ...

1) locate your cable modem connection on your notebook and open up its properties

2) in the advanced tab you should see the Internet Connection Sharing - click on Allow and choose Wireless Network Connection

3) Go back to Wireless Network COnnection, open up its properties

4) In the Advance tab, choose Computer-to-Computer (ad hoc)

5) UN-check the Automatically Connect to non-preferred Networks


Try that first with your built in Wireless Connection of the the notebook. For the USB stick, you should not have to change it to AP mode.

Compaq n6120 - can't connect wireless


Most wireless networks are setup as infrastructure networks, meaning all communication is to/from a wireless access point/router that serves the same function as a switch/hub in a wired network as a central point to transfer communications from machine to machine. One works over the air the other through a wire.

There is an alternate form of wireless networking refered to as ad hoc -- in this version of wireless networking every wireless adapter can "talk" to any other wireless adapter configured with the same SSID (name) and security encryption (none, WEP, WPA). This is how somewhat less impromptu wireless networks are created similar to impromptu infrared networks some of us have used. One limitation of the ad hoc networks I have seen configured to date is access to the internet. I have posted an article where a stationary PC (required to be running for any other wireless machine to access the internet) with a wireless card in ad hoc mode could act as the router for wireless network but it required a cabled connection the internet. I suppose it could be a second wireless connection on a separate channel with a second wireless adapter in an infrastructure network but why? These types of networks are only recommended in another article for a limited (small) number of machines.

Based on this are you asking to create an ad hoc network to connect 2 PC's wirelessly without a wireless router or access to the internet from the wireless network (without a dedicated machine)?
