[maemo-developers] How to setup ad-hoc wireless network N770 <> PC Windows XP ? (pls don't delete)

please note that the ifconfig commands are not to be run on the tablet, but
on the PC. On Windows XP, you would instead setup an Ad-Hoc connection by
using some GUI tool.

The Nokia tablets support Ad-Hoc mode out of the box. You just have to
select Ad-Hoc mode for the connection in the connection settings. Remember
to select Ad-Hoc mode on the PC side as well.
Now if the SSIDs are the same, you should get a connection. I usually use
static IPs for the PC and tablet in this mode.
