Thanks Michael,

if you mean ap as access point
so I don't have any ap
as I set up ad-hoc wireless network
It already works if I assign static IP addresses both on Nokia and PC running TVersity server.
Unfortunately I can't Opera web browser or Media Streamer as each one saves established ad-hoc wireless network
invoking maemo network connection utility
hanging maemo up , crashing and rebooting it.

As I see neither Opera web browser not Media Streamer can connect to TVersity over the already established ad-hoc network.
TVersity can be run locally on PC as http://localhost:41952/.
So the problem is not very complicated but how can I force networked applications like Opera web browser or Media Streamer not to invoke maemo network connection utility and use the established ad-hoc wireless.
I set both IP addresses as static and SMP monitor can read maemo IP address.

Pls remember hardware configuration.
No access point, no router. Peer-to-peer ad-hoc wireless network only.
No DHCP assigned IP addresses, static IP addresses only.

Any chance to have it working one day ?
