Sorry to hear your experiences with Android so far is not up to par with your expectations.
I have an iPhone at work and an HTC Legend privately and for me it's no question that Android is the superior OS, even though my phone only runs Froyo (two versions older than your Ice Cream Sandwich/4.0).
Hopefully you will learn to love it.

Now to your question:
If your laptop is connected to internet via WiFi, your Android phone should be able to connect to the same router/switch. If it doesn't work there might be a mac-filter active on the connection point and then you must go to its settings and allow your phones ID to connect (you should find your phone's mac address under Settings/About/Hardware information or something like that.

Good luck!

Welcome to AF Jean!

I'm sorry you appear to be having problems and Android doesn't meet your expectations so far. It's obvious you're a tad annoyed, but people of all ages read this forum, so if you could tone the language down a little in future I'd appreciate that, thanks.

Without root and/or installing a custom ROM, your options are limited I'm afraid. Is it the fact that it would void your warranty or the fact that you think it would be overly difficult that puts you off rooting?

I know you're looking for an ad-hoc wifi connection but it can also be done via USB. You'll see the option when you plug the phone in as well as under Settings > Wireless & networks > More > Internet pass-through.

Try giving the One V time. I've had mine for a month and have really come to enjoy it, though I still envy El Presidente's One X

Default So slow, but try hostednetwork

Hi there, I guess it's kind of late respond but try turn your laptop WiFi in not ad hoc but hosted network mode. If you run Windows 7, then this might be helpful:

first your phone must be able to tether to setup an adhoc network, which then ur laptop connects to. if you have any other devices like a tablet, they must be able to run in adhoc mode but some must be manually enabled. see the this guide Android Simplicity: How-To #35: Connecting To Adhoc Networks on Android Tablets/Phones
