ad-hoc wireless network help

Post by Dave Sha » Fri, 18 Nov 2005 18:21:33


Hi I'm new to pocket pc's and all things wireless so I'd be grateful for any
help. I have two PC's connected by a cable network. One has a broadband
connection, the other shares it. On the one that shares it I am trying to
set up an ad-hoc wireless connection with my Acer N50 pocket PC. I spoke to
Belkin and they tell me that the wireless adaptor is sending a signal that
should set up an ad-hoc connection (ie my pocket pc can't find the signal).
I called the signal 'home'. The pocket pc can see the signal but doesn't
connect to it. Sometimes it does, i have had it working, but sometimes it
doesn't. I can't figure out why. I have the pocket pc set to "only connect
to computer-computer networks" and on the configure wireless networks screen
it says 'Home - available' yet it doesn't connect.

If any has any ideas I'd be very grateful.

1. Ad hoc wireless network help

2. Problem with setting up ad-hoc wireless network - Please help!

Hi,

I am trying to setup a home wireless network without an
Access Point. There are only 2 computers on the network:
one laptop and one desktop. The information for each
computer is as below:

Laptop:
Windows XP Home
Integrated Wireless 802.11g
Workgroup: MSHOME
SSID: Mshome
Channel: 11
Wireless mode: Ad-hoc

Desktop:
Windows ME
USB Wireless 802.11b adapter
Workgroup: MSHOME
SSID: Mshome
Channel: 11
Wireless mode: 802.11 Ad-hoc

I can see detect the Mshome network on each computer but
I can't see each other?? There is only one type of Ad-hoc
mode to choose from on XP and I don't know if the it is
802.11 Ad hoc or just Ad hoc. I tried to change the
desktop wireless mode to just Ad-hoc but it didn't work.
I don't know if the different file system is the problem
(NTFS and FAT32). Please help.

Thanks a lot!
