My goal is to setup my laptop's wireless as an ad-hoc connection under Windows Vista. I do have a cheap wireless router but it is very slow. I was successful in establishing a temporary ad-hoc connection by bridging the wireless with my LAN. Unfortunately this connection is unstable, I can use it for about 5-10 minutes before I lose it. The connection is a lot faster than what my wireless access point box can provide. My suspicion is that there is something I need to configure either in my router or IP settings. Though I'm not sure whether I need to do it on my router, wireless or iPod. I am so confused. The YouTube videos and various websites I've researched make it look easy and I still fail.
