Working in Ad Hoc Mode

Introduction

Most installed wireless LANs today use "infrastructure" mode that requires the use of one or more
access points. With this configuration, the access point provides an interface to a distribution system
(e.g., Ethernet), which enables wireless users to utilize corporate servers and Internet applications.
As an optional feature, however, the 802.11 standard specifies "ad hoc" mode, which allows the radio
network interface card (NIC) to operate in what the standard refers to as an independent basic service
set (IBSS) network configuration. With an IBSS, there are no access points. User devices communicate
directly with each other in a peer-to-peer manner.
Even though it is a peer-to-peer connection, there must still be a host and a client; a host to initiate an ad
hoc connection and a client to join an existing ad hoc connection.

Requirements

Both peer devices must have static IPs with the same Default Gateway. Therefore, you must set up a
static IP on the terminal; see

Setting up a Static IP

Setting up a Static IP
1. After the CAB file is removed on the terminal, tap Start > Settings > Connections tab > Network
Cards.
2. Select the radio driver whose name begins "SWC IM;" the driver's name is in parentheses.
