Thread: Wifi without access point

  1. #1
    Default Wifi without access point
    Can the wifi use without access point?

    I got a eeePC (notebook with wifi) and iphone, can they connect to each other without a access point ?

    If I set the iphone ip statistically, will it work with other hotspots?

    In place there are no access point available, the iphone seems not able to find the notebook and there seems no way to config the ip.

    I am confused, can anyone help?

    Does the EeePC run Linux? You can certainly do it in windows both XP and Vista by setting up an ad hoc connection between the iPhone and the Laptop and then sharing the internet connection. I do it at work and it works pretty well.

    In linux I'm afraid I can't help you but I seem to remember that there is a really helpful video on the Web somewhere that explains how to do it if you fancy a bit of googling.
