Problems Connecting to Ad Hoc Network..
After trying for several hours, i give up and now im here to ask for some help. I tried connecting the S3 to the default ad hoc in windows 7 but it wouldnt get picked up on the wifi list. Quick google search shows that the s3 cannot do this. Makes it worse when i found out that someone did it with their iphone! Anyway i tried a couple of different virtual wifi softwares, virtualrouter, mhotspot, and a few others. The one i had most luck with was connectify, where i got the s3 to pick up the network, and even connect to it using a static ip.
then i had the problem where the virtual network had "no internet access" in windows, and managed to get that to work too by messing with the internet connection sharing.
yet i couldnt get the browser to open a page on the s3. i have no idea why it doesnt work, as everything is fine on the windows side, internet access is there, the network is being broadcast, and it is even connected to on the phone. does anyone know a way around it, or any way of getting the s3 to use the laptops internet connection wirelessly. Bluetooth included. Just as long as no root is needed. Thanks in advance.
