[maemo-users] Connecting N8*0 to laptop - USB or Ad-Hoc WiFi ?

If I should take both my N810 and a laptop to some unwired location (my 
boat), how can I have them communicate ?
Bringing a WiFi hub (+ power supply, + inverter...) seems like overkill.

If I could set my laptop in Ad-Hoc or Master mode (which I'm not sure I 
can, or even if the chip supports it; the iwconfig option is rejected in 
Linux and I just get confused in Windows between duelling Microsoft and 
IBM managers), could the N810 connect ?

Or, is it possible to connect via the USB cable and get a shell so I can 
use the laptop keyboard ?
Otherwise, posting files through the SD card would work OK, but no
