When we share internet connection through ad-hoc wireless network, each individual connecting to our network will be assigned with an unique IP Address and other required fields will be filled with proper data(Gateway and ..). I used this feature to access my iPad through wifi, and had no intention of sharing an internet connection. Now that I don't have an internet connection to share, my computer doesn't give any IP to my device, therefore my computer is unable to see my iPad on the network. I also tried "Create network" feature of mac, but again, since IP addresses have been assigned by self, I'm not able to see my iPad on the network. Now here's the funny part, I used WireShark to watch packets on my network, and seems like both my system and iPad are broadcasting their information on network, but none of them see the other one! Is there any solution to my problem? I basically want to create an ad-hoc network and access my iPad through it!
