    hi,
    first of all let me excuse this new thread by telling you that i have used google, hundreds of forums and the last 12 hours (breaks included) trying to set up an wireless ad-hoc network from my ipod to my laptop.

    as for the laptop:
    i use windows vista.
    internet connection is over a 3.5g expresscard from vodafone. internet sharing has been activated.
    ad-hoc network is called HarryPoder and is also found on the iPod.
    It has as static IP 192.168.0.1 with the gateway 255.255.255.0
    Security is set to wep with 5 characters
    ipv6 is activated but should be irrelevant in this case.

    now to the iPod:
    iPod touch using firmware 1.1.3, no jailbreak
    HarryPoder is found
    when i click connect it says cannot connect to network but the blue waves appear on the top left corner.
    when i click cancel the waves persist.
    now i check what ip i get and see that i was assigned 192.168.0.218
    gateway is set to 255.255.255.0
    router and dns are set to 192.168.0.1
    so this all seems to be okay
    the waves are still there.
    now i connect again and it says could not connect. instead of pressing cancel i connect again and it works fine.
    so the connection is established.
    now i press the home button because i want to use safari
    wait for 2 seconds and the waves are gone.
    when opening safari it asks me to connect to HarryPoder and i say connect, enter the password, ignore the could-not-connect-message and discover that google appears on the screen and the waves are back.
    everything works in the browser!
    then i click the home button again to check my mail.
    now the waves are gone and mail tells me it cannot connect and nothing more happens.going back to safari doesn't change things as there is no connection.

    can anyone help me out on this. Please!! i'm kind of desperate! (not a good lookin housewife though)
    greetz, kliph

    i installed ccproxy but it still doesn' work.
    i don't get this part:
    quote: "server: Ip address of your CCproxy client (in ccproxy select "options" check the local ip address is your wirless adapter)"
    i can only check autodetect.

    I think the problem is that the networks have to be disjunted for internet sharing to work (ie Touch and WiFi card 192.168.x.x class and the 3G card another one).
    I had the very same problem sharing my wired connection, and that solved it.
    I do not know with Vista, but with Windows XP the IP of the card USING the shared network HAS to be 192.168.0.1, or the sharing will not work.
    When the sharing is active tough, you can change the IPs as you like.

    You can check this other thread where I posted my exact config, wich is working.
