    Hi,

    I am having a bit of confusion about this particular problem.

    I have a unibody MacBook late-2009, latest update of SL 10.6.4.

    I am attempting to use a computer-to-computer network from my MacBook to my iPod Touch 3G to use an application called TouchOSC which controls Ableton Live on my Mac.

    I can Create Network just fine. It sets up the network inbetween my Mac and iPod perfectly. But once I disconnect from the created computer-to-computer network, that network disappears like it was never created. To use computer-to-computer again I have to re-create the network all over.

    All of my other networks are stored just fine and I have no other problems with my house Wi-Fi or any others. I have reset my Network Preferences by deleting the SystemConfigurations files and still nothing doing about the computer-to-computer problem.

    I am not sure if this is desired behavior, and if it is, is there any way I can save the network I created for later use? Setting it up every time is painful, I want to use it nearly everyday for music.

    Any ideas? Thanks for reading.

    That's the normal behavior for that feature. It's intended to be Ad-Hoc, which implies a one-time applicable use. I'm not sure if there are solutions to keep a network like that available more permanently, but if you search, you'll see a number of threads about this just in the past week or two.
