    Also - if it's 2.2 you're running, I believe that the kernel has to allow for that.

    What rom/kernel are you using?

    Stock android cannot "see" ad hoc networks. They can create a ad hoc network for other devices to connect to, but Android devices themselves cannot see ad hoc networks.

    The good news is you can flash a new Wifi driver that will enable this. The bad news is I'm not sure the work is complete or tested on an Evo.
