    Default GALAXY S2 Wifi not at all supporting AD-HOC network

    hi,
    I wanted to use my wired internet on laptop inside galaxy s2.SO i started looking out for options dig deep into many forums.One solution was to use connectify-me and make laptop as wifi hotspot but problem after so much trial and error is android itself does not support AD-HOC wifi mode.
    Can someone please tell how can anyone use laptop/PC internet inside galaxy s2 other than purchasing wifi dongle and simply using wifi inside laptop or USB.

    P.s I dont want to root my phone because one solution suggesting to root the device but i am not that desperate to play with my new phone.

    Put ur sharp brains to test and pls tell me what u can do to solve this issue.

    Its mostly android issue but device also does not provide any solution to use PC internet in mobile.

    bye.

    if you laptop is working as a wifi hotspot then you should be able to connect your phone normally using the wifi..

    yes laptop's wifi as hotspot transmits it in AD-HOC mode but ICS in galaxy s2 atleast does not detect this AD-HOC mode signal.I need workaround this problem.

    There was some workaround to connect to ad-hoc network in GB @xda,do not know about ICS.
    It was just a change in permission in GB,should not be much difficult with ICS also!
    BTW somehow GS2 connected to ad-hoc network created with a Mac when I had it.

    Do not worry,rooting won't screw up your phone!
    It is pretty easy actually!

    Try virtual router.Funny connectify should work too.
    Virtual Router
    Make sure internet sharing is active on your main network connection.

    Infact the AD-HOC Wi-Fi Network works absloutely fine if you make your Laptop as a Hotspot and try to connect to the Internet from your SGS-2 the only problem is when you reverse the equation atleast with my VAIO Laptop I cannot connect to the 3G Internet connection on my SGS-2 from my Laptop. So my SGS-2 can use Internet from Laptop, But Laptop cannot from SGS-2
