    Default Can not connect to internet vis ad-hoc wifi(Connectify-me)

    I have a new laptop running Win 7 64 bit. I am using a Wifi ad-hoc software named connectify-me. Connectify-me show the G-tab is connected to the ad-hoc wpf and the G-tab shows it is connected but, when I try load a web page I get "connection failed, unable to connect please review your network settings" I have disconnected and reconnect several times in both the G-tab and the
    software "Connectify-me" on the laptop and everything says I am connected. I can access he internet with the laptop. I am using a 3g mobile modem to access the internet. I originally had the modem and software on a XP laptop and never had a problem.

    Are you using the stock OS, or a different ROM? From what I remember, you have to use a ROM that enables ad-hoc connections. The stock OS just supports access point connections.

    Thank you. I found the problem, it was with the Connectify -me software. I uninstalled and did a reinstall and everything worked great. How quickly we can forget the basics! :-)

    i have a samsung galaxy tab 10.1 and i am trying to connect to a wifi signal from a samsung laptop running connectify-me pro.i couldnt get connectify-me running with wpa2 security (hostednetwork error of some sort).i then tried running it with wep security and it worked ....with my iphone 4s.the samsung galaxy tab however gives me a message "unable to access network wep secured"
    i emailed connectify-me and they wrote back with this nonsense

    Maixo,

    This is a known problem with many devices, including most (but not all) Android devices. When you set up an Ad-Hoc hotspot with Connectify, you'll find that PCs and some other devices see it, but some portable devices do not. This is not our doing -- the portable devices are simply refusing the Ad-Hoc connection. There's no reason they couldn't use it, they're just programmed to reject it.

    so samsung market a product as wifi only and then prevent you from using wifi signals !!
    i have spent hours trying to fix this and have steam coming out my ears.there is a possible solution using a static address but how do you find out what ip address/gateway/network prefix length/dns1/dns2 are?
    beginning to regret not getting an i-pad because this is utter nonsense .can anyone help?

    use instead the "mHotspot" which is a great software hotspot, I had been trying for atleast 100 or more days, to resolve the problem, only today I installed it my hotspot works fine.
