    I'm not clear what you're asking...

    You want to connect your dhd to your pc via wifi without the use of a router?

    He wants to turn his PC into a Wifi hotspot so he can connect his DHD to it.

    Didn't those work?

    See this from your Link :

    1.
    The first step will be to install an 802.11b wireless card in the main computer and configure it as a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) wireless connection.
    2.
    The second step will be to install a wireless card in a second computer.

    She said from PC to PC and must 2 wireless cards installed ? I want from PC to phone ?

    Pc to pc isn't to be taken literally, your pc has the ability to be seen as an AP (access point/hotspot), at least it can with a dedicated pci wifi card.
    Your phone will then have something to connect to via wifi.

    I don't know this adapter's specifics, so can't say whether it will or won't work for you.

    I just know my pci wifi card comes with the ability to be an AP, as well as connect to a router in the usual way. (but not at the same time, one or the other)

    Doesn't the hotspot procedure given by el presidente work regardless of what wifi device you have?
    You must know somebody with a wifi enabled pc, the only way to know for sure is try it out.

    If you were connecting 2 PC's you would, but as you're only setting up one as an access point, you'd only need the 1. The DHD has inbuilt Wifi. Could you get him to explain why you'd need 2 cards?

    Does this link help at all? It takes the 2nd PC out of the equation which I think is what's confusing the matter.
