    Setting up adhoc. Linux and Windows


    I have a TL-WN620G wireless adapter. I want to set up an adhoc network between a fedora machine which has an internet connection and a windows machine. How should I go about doing this? Thank you.

    You should be able to set up adhoc with network manager. I've never done it, but I'm pretty sure I've seen it there. Are you looking to share the internet connection or just be able to communicate with the XP machine?

    I'm not sure if you can share the internet through adhoc, I think your wireless would have to be set to master mode (AP) and then XP would connect to it like it was a wireless router. Not all wireless cards support master mode though.
