    Any techno freaks here??
    hey,i've got my first ever ANDROID MOb(GALAXY ACE)
    But AD-HOC connection from my laptop is not detected by my PHONE,infact android doesnt support adhoc(i came ti know it).

    So,now...
    1.is there any app for android 2.2 to detect n access AD-HOC connection?

    2.is there any procedure to create an access point by laptop similiar to one that is created by the wifi router??

    3,OR ANY GOD DAMN WAY TO SHARE MY INTERNET TO MY PHONE THROUGH MY LAPTOP???(over wifi or bluetoth)

    Connectify me is a grate piece of software...
    used it for almost a month.. then i bought a router.. ;)

    make sure you select proper encryption like WAP2 and experiment with different ones if you are not able to detract it on your phone...

    well I struggled with this issue for some time, here is what I learned:

    ad-hoc can work on Ace, only with some of the custom ROMs, like cyanogen. Only issue is that it doesn't work great, the ad-hoc can not use security and the connection to google play doesn't work too great. If you are trying to connect to Win XP then ad-hoc is the only way to go ( at least that I have found).

    if you have windows 7 then "most" people can actually run wifi infrastructure mode, such as connectify or other methods. Then Ace can run as normal wifi with security.
