Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Connecting ur Nokia N95 to internet through WIFI [No Wireless Router]


Tutorial for connecting ur Nokia N95 to internet through WIFI [No Wireless Router]
Hello mates,

Finally after 4 hours of searching and trying I was able to hook my Nokia N95 to my laptop without router and browse internet on my mobile.

I tried using my laptop’s Wi-Fi Card as router or connection point between my pc and my phone.

This connection is known as “ad-hoc” connection. Ad hoc wireless networks work more like walkie-talkies, because the computers communicate directly with each other. By enabling Internet Connection Sharing on one of the computers, you can share Internet access.

To see the difference between ad-hoc and router check the picture

With ad-hoc

Now lets see what do we need:

1. We need a Wi-Fi card on the computer
2. Internet connection that doesn’t use your Wi-Fi card (example Like mine: Cable-modem connected to my laptop through LAN).

Now Let’s Setup our Wi-Fi card as router:

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. Click Network and Internet Connections.

3. Right-click your wireless network connection, and then click Properties.

4. In the Wireless Network Connection Properties dialog box, click the Wireless Networks tab.

5. Next, click the Advanced tab at the top of the window. Select Computer to computer (ad hoc) networks only and clear the Automatically connect to non-preferred networks box if it is selected. This setting, along with removing preferred networks, ensures connection to the ad hoc network only.

6. Click the Wireless Networks tab again. Under Preferred Networks, click Add,

7. In the Wireless Network Properties dialog box, specify a Network name (SSID). I chose (My Nokia N95).

8. Unclear the box “ the key is provided for me automatically”.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/9949/86872283hs2.th.gif]
9. Type your Network key password and confirm it in the second Network key conformation box( your password has to be 5 characters or 13 characters ), Press Ok.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9176/10is2.th.gif]
10. After configuring the network name (SSID) in the Wireless Network Properties dialog box, the new ad hoc network will be displayed with a PC Card icon to designate that this is a computer-to-computer network. Press also Ok.
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/4931/101mu2.th.gif]
11. Right-click the Wireless Network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks..
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/7017/12yf6.th.gif]
12 . The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays your wireless network listed with the SSID you chose( My Nokia N95). If you don't see your network, click Refresh Network List in the upper left corner. Do not click Connect in the lower right corner.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/6600/13wm3.th.gif]

Now we have to share the internet:

14. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/6918/14ta5.th.gif]
15. Click Network and Internet Connections.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/5887/15xb5.th.gif]
16. Since I have a cable modem and it connected to my laptop through LAN so must share its connection with My Wi-FI card. Right-click the Local Area Connection and press properties.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/4872/16ck2.th.gif]
17. Now you are in Local Area Connection Properties choose tab Advanced.
[img=http://img111.imageshack.us/img111/2746/17ih3.th.gif]
18 . select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/8369/18ve0.th.gif]

Now On Your Nokia N95 Phone (I have v20 Firmware) :

19 . Go to Menu>Tool> click on WLAN Wiz. Your Network name should appear ( in the example its “My Nokia N95”).
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/6633/screenshot0004vw7.th.jpg]
20. Select Option > Start Brwosing.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/1807/screenshot0005wj4.th.jpg]
21. Now it should ask you for the Network key password you entered in step 9 and Press OK.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/9264/screenshot0007yk6.th.jpg]
22. Now it opened the web so I chose Nokia Nseies web site ans start browse it.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/4574/screenshot0010oq1.th.jpg]
23. While it connecting to” My Nokia N95” you should see that your phone Network status will appear Connected on your computer.
[img=http://img503.imageshack.us/img503/6197/19aw8.th.gif]

24. Wait for 30 Second and it will Open.
[img=http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/2649/screenshot0011qg4.th.jpg]


Note Important : you should turn you firewall off because it will block the connection and after you succeed connecting N95 to internet try configure your firewall so it will allow internet accesing.

Sir i had view sonic vpc100 all in one pc ...how can i use wifi as hotspot sir


You could turn your phone into a hotspot but not your laptop. Your laptop could create an ad hoc (on the fly) wifi connection like a link but you would need wifi to connect your laptop to the internet.

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

I have a iphone 3gs and want to access wifi or wireless on toshiba satellite pro x200


Hi,

These cards could be used as client(connecting to wireless router), adhoc or access point(a WiFi card could be used as Access Point to route your LAN(Wired) connection on WLAN)...

Your laptop WiFi card is already busy as a Cleint, so if you want to use it as AdHoc, you have to remove all the other connection with the WIreless...ie, Disconnect the WLAN from connecting other devices, and follow the below mentioed steps to connect your device..

When you are using Client mode you are not able to use it on Ad-hoc or Access Point feature...

Setup laptop to Ad-Hoc
1)Navigate to control panel and choose network connection, Right click on the Wireless network connection and click on the Properties on Wireless NIC
2) Click-Wireless Networks Tab
3) Click-Add
4) Provide SSID Name, name to identify you rnetwork
5)Security -Net Auth: Open
6)Make -Data Encryption: Disabled
7) In the check box present-Check on This is a Computer to Computer (ad-hoc) network.
Change the IP address of the Wireless NIC card, by choosing TCp IP in the properties of WLAN and choosing TCP/IP v4 from the installed service

TCP/IP on Laptop
-IP: 10.0.0.1
-Subnet: 255.255.255.0

TCP/IP on iPhone
-Static IP
-IP: 10.0.0.2

Getting online with your PSP is very simple. First, you must be in range of a Wifi hotspot (wireless local area network). You can adjust network setting to connect to an access point such as a Wi-Fi hotspot or the router on a wireless home network and save the network connections data on your PSP®. Up to 10 connections can be saved.

Once in range of the hotspot, go to "Settings" menu, >> "Network" Settings and press "X" Button. Select "Infrastructure Mode" or "Ad Hoc Mode" and press X Button. Set up the "New Connection". For details about Infrastructure Mode set up, or Ad Hoc Mode set up, visit us.playstation.com.. hope this helps.
