Hey guys, is there anyway to connect to an adhoc wifi connection on WP7? I'm trying to connect to a an adhoc connection I setup on my laptop, but my lumia 710 doesn't even see it. I've tried tried adding the name as if the SSID was hidden, didn't work either.
I also experiences this with Lumia 920 and found out that Windows Phone 8 does not support WiFi adhoc mode. It can only connect to WiFi infrastructure mode. On Windows 7, this mode can be done using software like 'mhotsopt'.
I find it very dissapointing that Microsoft can't be bothered to enable WP7 or 8 to connect to ad hoc networks. I recently set up such a network and was surprised my WP did not even see it.
Further problem is when you try to set up ad hoc on Win8 since Microsoft in all their wisdom remored the UI option to do it, had an issue when I wanted to set up ad hoc connection with my Surface Pro, hope they put this funcionality back with W8.1.
I have Installed mHotspot. And the hotspot was detected in my Lumia 630 mobile which runs on Windows 8.1. But it says the phone will not able to connect to Internet. In laptop am using internet via Bluetooth modem from Nokia N8 using AdHoc Network.
