    Ok guys here is the deal. Let me first start off by saying thank you in advance for responses. I am trying to create an ad hoc network with my droid and laptop. So far I am able to create the network with a toshiba and tethered droid. My other laptop in the house can see the network but can't connect to it. What in the world is going on??? Please help!! I am running win7 and droid 2.2

    I take it you are rooted? I don't believe you can create a "network" with the droid. It does tethering, which is 1-to-1, not multi devices.

    omg. after hours of searching!!!!!!!!!!I FOUND IT........"Not unless the hardware doesn't support it. Worst case scenario try USB tethering. It's more secure, just as fast, charges the battery, but you can't share it with other computers unless you have Windows 7 and a program called "connectify me" or something like that." CONNECTIFY ME,,,,,DID IT!!!! IT ACTUALLY WORKS........
