I think the site is having a problem today. I am on this site everyday and today was the first time I experienced any problem. Wait it out and see if it goes away.Could somebody try to load xda developers website. Click the forums section and see if it runs smoothly. I'm having trouble running the site. Its not a problem, cause I can still use the app. Just curious if its hardware limitation, or adobe flash.

If you have root then you should be able to replace the wpa_supplicant file with the one from this thread like we did on the Xoom.
You can use Root explorer rather than ADB if you want.
First you want to turn off your wifi. I have used the ADB method a couple of times but I find it easier to use Root explorer. Save the file to your memory, Copy it using root explorer, navigate to the system/bin folder and click mount R/W then paste the file into the folder replacing the original (make sure to make a backup!) then long hold on the file and view permissions, check all the boxes in the first two columns and the first 2 in the last column. (chmod 775) You can then restart your wifi and enjoy ad-hoc networks (no reboot needed.)
I've done this a couple of times on my Xoom and it works great
