    I have a new Droid Incredible (upgraded from Eris :)) but I cannot connect to an ad-hoc network I have setup.

    With wi-fi turned on, I scan for networks and nothing shows up. I even manually entered the network name and no security (which is how it's setup right now) and it still does not connect.

    Can the Inc connect to ad-hoc networks?

    thanks, I will look into that. We have a stock Droid 2 connected to the ad-hoc network and yesterday I was able to connect my Eris (rooted running a 2.1 ROM).

    I'v been trying to do this since launch day. I have ICS at work, with wireless internet sharing from my work machine, and i'm sharing an ad-hoc network. All my friends with iPhones and Ipod Touches can connect except for me. I turn it off on purpose to piss them off. I know there is some modification that needs to be done in the configuration file, but you need to use the 'adb shell' and you need to know the VI language.

    I just rooted my Incredible and tried the aforementioned steps. No luck for me as of yet...
