    As you know the Sony Tablet S and Android are not compatible using Ad Hoc networks.
    I know there is some patch. Here i was reading: szym.net » Ad-hoc Wifi in Android
    the WifiManager in stock Android ignores ad-hoc networks. There are a couple ways around this:
    • One is to modify the Android framework to support ad-hoc networks (I recall seeing some custom ROM for Samsung Moment that had this).
    • Another is to manually configure the wpa_supplicant to connect to an ad-hoc network.
    • Yet another one is to patch the wpa_supplicant to pretend that ad-hoc networks are regular access points.
    What thing i must do for have ad-hoc support in wpa_supplicant

    Thanks
    I have been reading if you fail doing it your Wifi could be disabled and damaged

    Any suggestions on where to find one for sony? I google search had lots of hits but after spending an hour skimming through a bunch of hits, it might be faster to just ask :)

    This adhoc wifi problem really blows.

    Thanks in advance.
