Need an easy way to connect your Windows PC or Laptop with you iPhone or iPad or even iPod Touch? Ad Hoc Wireless Network will be the best solution. Here we have an easy How-To guide to setup Ad Hoc Wireless Network in Windows system.

Ad Hoc Wireless Network

An ad hoc network (also named peer-to-peer) is a very simple network involving at least two systems, in our case your PC, Windows PC and your mobile device, iPhone or iPad or iPod Touch. Unlike usual local area networks (LAN) no server or router is needed. We will set up Wireless Ad Hoc Network.
