Just out of intrest have you thought about looking into putting your netbook into "Wireless Access Point" mode, some wireless cards allow you todo it. Basically means that your phone will see the PC like router, not sure if it is possible with your set up but its worth researching.

No, as in using my computer to create the network. What Jonny above said. I can use my computer to create wireless networks

But that not enough, boz I have the 3G unlimited date SIM in my Nokia N82 and using the Joikuspot share thr 3G network to my 2 notebook and iPod. However, I can't connect my N1 to N82 since my N82 using the AD HOC sharing 3G data.

Ahh ok, Are you sure your network is adhoc, because according to what I read about Jokiuspot the Nokia N82 acts like a wireless router.

AND YOU'RE STILL SCREAMING LIKE A JACKASS


If its a /true/ adhoc network then you can connect just fine with an N1. But, your n82 doesnt seem to be creating a real Adhoc network, but rather a proprietary ad hoc stream

Adding your ad-hoc SSID in Settings->Wireless & Network, then do the following modification in data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf:

1)Add
ap_scan=2
at the beginning.
2)Locate the "network" section corresponded to your ad-hoc network, add "mode=1" in that section.
3)If the previous two steps don't solve the problem, try adjust the priority of the ad-hoc network to the highest: make sure "priority=1" in its network section, and modify other sections' priorities sequentially.

It works for me!

thanx for your feedback.
do you know what tool to use in order to edit such types of files? is there an editor directly to use on the N1, or is it necessary to copy it to SD -> edit on PC?

thanx

when in 'adb shell' there is 'vi' by default. but its kind of hard to use.
vi /path/to/file, navigate with 'h' (left), 'j' (down), 'k' (up), 'l' (right), enter editing mode when at the appropriate position with 'i', write whatever you want and go back to view-mode with esc. repeat until finished. then, in view-mode enter :wq (there will be a prompt at the bottom after entering the : w = write, q = quit). done. easy huh?

or you can always do
adb pull /path/to/file .
your-favorite-editor file
adb push file /path/to/file

which is probably a lot easier.
the first solution works on the terminal emulator on the phone as well, so i thought it might be worth explaining.

thanx alot, xkonni. i thought there would be an easier way too... :D like a GUI editor in which i could do all that. anyway, good to know.

since then, i've flashed CMb5 and the Ad-hoc WiFi problem is solved. i can connect without any problems :D

a little vi-knowledge can be a life-saver in some situations... its available almost anywhere... routers etc...

I'm able to discover and connect to the ad hoc network I'm creating with my iPhone using Cyanogen's latest CM 5.02 ROM.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Sealos
