I have a problem with my WLAN ad-hoc mode. But first the details. I want to share my internet connection (UMTS via USB) via the wireless lan interface in Win 7.
The first step was to activate the sharing for the UMTS interface which is done and the chosen device is the name of my wireless lan device.
The second step was to create a ad-hoc network which is also done. With my second mashine I can connect without getting a IP caused by no running DHCP Server. So I tried to set satic IP addresses (the ad-hoc server 192.168.100.1 and the second mashine got ... .100.2). But I wasn't able to ping the server with my client. Subnet is the standard one (255.255.255.0) no default Gateway for the host, the default gateway for the client was the ip address of the server. Where is my fault? Maybe it is better to use a DHCP server? Which one is good?
Thanks for your help!
