    connecting to an adhoc network

    Does anyone know of a way to get the motorola droid to connect to an adhoc network created by my computer? I know there are programs like Connectify and Virtual Router Manager that turn your computer into a wifi hotspot. But I guess my wireless card is so old that it can only function in adhoc mode with these programs. Thanks for any help.

    Android can't normally connect to a Ad-Hoc network, but you can manually edit the WLAN configuration files to force it to. I have not personally verified this works on a Droid (this information was written for the Hero, apparently), but the Droid does at least have the same configuration files so it is worth a shot:

    Bring this back up but has anyone confirmed these steps work for the droid?

    If your phone is rooted then you can get an app from the Market called 'Wireless Tether'. This app will turn the phone into a Adhock wireless connection to which a single devise can connect to at 3G speed. Lots of information on this site and other Android web sites on this specific process and what goes into creating it.

    We're not trying to tether the phone to use the 3G network. I am trying to connect to an adhoc network that is sent out from a wireless device that I own. Currently there is nothing out that I've seen to make this possible.

    I did follow the instructions you posted. But my droid will still not connect to my adhoc network. I can see my adhoc network with WiFi Analyzer. But I can not connect to it. Has anyone had success following these instructions?
