    I can set-up an ad-hoc network on my Vista laptop and connect to it with another laptop over WIFI to surf.

    Is there a way I can connect my Ipad to my Vista Laptop using WIFI to be able to surf the internet ?

    If it works with your laptop, then it should also work the same with your iPad. Have you tried it yet?

    My Ipad is 2000 miles away from me...I suppose this ad-hoc network works only between windows PC's...no ?

    Why would you think that? Ad-hoc network makes one PC into a wifi hotspot, and any wifi enabled device can connect to that.

    And why are you asking this now, if you don't have your iPad with you to try it out?

    The iPad can connect to an adhoc network, but you have to be within range of the network.

    I was asking a serious question. I mean, you asked a question, I (and now several other people) gave you an answer, which you didn't believe, and when I suggested you give it a try, you came back and said you don't have your iPad with you. So I'm now genuinely curious about why you wanted to know.

    nice retort, all he asked was a simple question to be able to answer your inquiry
