I can only see the following under set:

profileorder
profileparameter
tracing

Virtual WiFi adapter is Windows 7/8 feature only. Upgrade the OS Vista is buggy actually.

reminds me of one software I was trying before(when trying to activate adhoc also) I think it was connectify but not sure. it can only be used also in windows 7 only.

thanks anyway. I hope android includes this on their future updates.

Yup its connectify. It works in Vista but in Vista is ad hoc only. Even that software requires windows 7 or above for Virtual WiFi.

[QUOTE=Harsha Raj;32654279]Well but the thing is virtual wifi adapter is much for efficient and secured than ad hoc network. Even if you want to set up the ad hoc it will take the same amount of procedure. Just that you will be using the GUI and not the command prompt. But do note that windows 8 has no ad hoc feature

Only draw back of the this method is that you need wifi adapter supporting virtual wifi and you should be on Windows 7/8.


as i'm running xp i cannot use virtual wi-fi. my aim is just to connect to the internet, when my laptop has a connection. maybe someone patches the wpa_supplicant ...

In that case hope someone comes with a patch just like they did for GB.

Thumbs up All thanks to Harsha Raj
Initially there was some issue with 3rd step, but updating the wifi driver via device manager proved to be useful..
In the process Harsha Raj was very useful and he was giving continuous support..
Thanks, it is very useful to users like us who are not using Data plans.

Thanks a lot again buddy.
God Bless us all.

Vielen Dank für diese super Anleitung.

Lange habe ich versucht, eine Lösung für das AdHoc Problem unter ICS zu finden. Diese Anleitung ist die perfekte Alternative.
Alles funktionierte genau wie beschrieben.
