In ML anyone know how to create a ad hoc network?? I couldnt find it.
Would like to know this too
Really? It's been changed? Normally you go to Wi-fi and "Create Network..." Wow, if this was taken out, that will be unbelievable and beyond annoying.
Yep. That's pretty much the way it is. I have posted in the Apple Seed forums to see if there is a new way to do this.
Thanks! I thought I was one only that didnt know this...
I cant use quasidisk any more
I love Apple technology, but WHY are they crippling their computers to this point? There's no reason for it!
I can't believe they would take this feature out... It's unbelievable how they are crippling their os as the previous user said... What is the os x team smoking these days...
Tried going into the Sharing system preference panel and turning Internet Sharing on?
Is there a third-party software doing the same?
Sharing -> Internet Sharing -> Wifi Options
calm down everyone...
I'm assuming you don't know what an ad hoc network is then.
why not? because you and you alone know these things?
this gives you an ad-hoc network. if you don't have an internet connection then it still provides a network.
It is a bit daft of Apple to over-simplify in this way but we're not at release yet.
No ad-hoc network. It's gone. Internet sharing is there, but that requires an existing network connection.
I think from Apple's viewpoint they feel ad-hoc network is replaced by AirDrop, but of course that only works for Apple products, and recent ones at that!
internet sharing, despite the name, doesn't require a working internet connection
But it does require a working LAN, at least. You must associate the adapter for sharing with an adapter on a functioning network. The ad hoc network feature did not require an existing network, so could be used between a Mac and a PC over Wifi in the wilderness. Closest to this now is AirDrop between two Macs in the wilderness.
I unplugged my ethernet and turned it off, then went into wifi options, created a network, then configured internet sharing
The "Create Network" choice doesn't exist in Mountain Lion, at least not in the same location as it appears in Lion. If you've found it, exactly where is it?
as I said above
sharing -> internet sharing
Share Connection from: Ethernet (or any other)
To computers using: Wifi
click Wi-Fi Options
This does not require a working internet connection though.
Aha! Thanks. They must have implemented that with Preview 3. Previously I couldn't select "Share your connection from" if there wasn't a connection.
I think it might be the update to DP3... but yeah.
it's a mess. I think we'll see 'create network' coming under the the menu bar with option held down. If you go in there now theres some nice diagnostics and monitoring stuff to play with that I've not seen before and isn't in 10.7.4
I can't create a new network on ML DP3
When I click "Wi-Fi Options..." button, the title says to *Configure* an internet-sharing network, not to create one, like it does for Lion's "Create Network..." menu item. I then click the "OK" button, but no new Wi-Fi network appears. Clicking the "Internet Sharing" checkbox doesn't seem to help. What am I missing?
Thanks in advance.
I actually use this while on the road with a USB modem for the iDevices in the car. It really comes in handy.
Had to join the forum just to reply to this.
The feature is still in Mountain Lion it has just been moved. Its now in the menubar.
Nobody was saying it wasn't in the release, just that it was missing in the early previews.
