Hi, Well probably i know the solution, modify wpa_supplicant.conf file, add an entry for the ad-hoc network created and you can then connect to it. But this is very static in nature. Tomorrow if am in a different place and need to connect to some different ad-hoc network i wont be able to do it without modifying the wpa file again. I just found this link: Android Ad-hoc support hack/wpa_supplicant - xda-developers And according to it, it dynamically shows ad-hoc networks like any other access point prefixed with a *. But it's been tested on HTC devices, so i am a bit pessimistic about using it. Experts here please if you can guide me further by going through with the article on xda.
