cm9 does not support ad-hoc because ics doen not provide that facility. But we can create a virtual router and share the wifi from our laptop.

1.Download virtual router(you can google it. version:0.9 beta).

2.Install it in your system.Open it.

3.Now open command promt as administrator and type this

netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=android key=TYPE YOUR PASSWORD

press enter.

4.Type netsh wlan start hostednetwork and press enter. Now you hava created a virtual router.

5.Open network and sharing center. it will display your lan network which is connected to internet.

6.Click on Local area connection and select properties. A new window will open.

7.Select sharing from that window. There will be something called Allow network users to connect through this computer's internet. Click on the Checkbox.

8.Select the network. Usually it will be wireless network connection 2. If not select wireless network connection.

9.Hit ok. Now you will be able to share your internet connection via wifi.

I am not big fan of UBUNTU but found this. Give it a try and say if it works.

In Ubuntu 10.04, it seems extremely easy to have this hostapd work. First, of course, you need to install it. It is already in the official repositories. Just run this in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install hostapd
Then, open a text editor program, for example gedit. Copy the following into it.

interface=wlan0
driver=nl80211
ssid=
channel=1
hw_mode=g
auth_algs=1
wpa=3
wpa_passphrase=
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP


Please don’t forget to fill in the name of your network after “ssid=”, as well as the password after “wpa_passphrase=”.

After all these, save the file as hostapd.conf in your home folder.

Now, in your terminal:

sudo hostapd hostapd.conf

Turn the wifi connection on in your devices and enjoy the fast network share!

This works only on windows platform. Tested on Windows 7 ultimate x64.

@ janeindiran
yeah, thanks, already did it. long story short: nl80211 driver does not work, guys @ linuxwireless are working on a functional broadcom4313 driver, which is, by chance, my wireless card. Good news is that they're working on it, so there's still hope.
ps can agree on ubuntu, but i'm a dumbass and it was my first choice to move from windows!

Its not really a fix for your phone, its another way of creating a network. It will work for Windows users.
