    Hi there, I have created an adhoc wifi connection with internet sharing enabled on windows 7 and am struggling to get my Desire to see it. Another laptop can see it as well as my ipod touch.

    I have tried both WEP and WPA-2 security types (only two available) and I cannot see the wifi.

    Is there anything I have to do on the phone?

    Forgot to add - I am able to connect to my home wifi (bt homehub) but I am no longer at home.

    There is no adhoc application on the market (that I can find). Thank you both for your replies.

    It is true that Android doesn't support AD HOC networks, I have now got "Virtual Router Manager" to create a virtual router, and I can now connect my desire to my computers internet. :)
