if you root, barnacle in the market will do ad-hoc, havent tried on my nexus but the x10 does it fine.

No, it isn't.
You need to extract the wpa_supplicant file and put it into the sdcard root folder.

The commands are the following:

adb remount
adb shell
cd /system/bin/
cp wpa_supplicant wpa_supplicant-ori (backup for rollback)
cp /sdcard/wpa_supplicant wpa_supplicant

p.s. Requirement:
Phone is rooted
Android SDK 2.3 on your computer

CyanogenMod Alpha 2 is pretty stable, and flashing it will allow you to easily connect to ad-hoc networks without any hassle. It's great for me since I use my Droid to provide wi-fi to it.

Thanks for this.

Wonder if it will work with 2.3.3?

I found this free program that will do that with most wifi NICs, its pretty useful.
