    access points and/or adhoc connectivity

    Hi
    can anyone tell me if there is a technical difference between a wifi access
    point and a wireless network card in adhoc mode( when it is setup to accept
    incoming connections), let me explain, I want to connect a Sony PSP to
    internet, it can do it through an access point , but it can not connect to
    my laptop in adhoc mode ( I can connect other laptops to my laptop in this
    mode).
    some where I've read that there are some wireless NICs that can emulate an
    access point, is it true? if true does this mode has a special name?

    thanks in advance

    Hi
    Turning a Wireless card to an Access Point cost much more than buying a good
    Wireless cable DSL Router and using it as an Access Point.
    Does the PSP Wireless card suppose to do Ad-HOC? Not every card can.

    it has a special kind of ad-hoc as Sony complained, it has a mode named
    "adhoc" but in that mode it tries to find only other PSPs to share a
    multiplayer game.you said "Turning a Wireless card to an Access Point", so
    does it mean its always possible? I'm not doing this for its cost, its just
    a technical experience. can you tell me if it is a kind of software issue or
    a hardware one that restricts these two to communicate in adhoc mode?
    thanks

    Hi
    It is something specific to the Sony Hardware.
    I would suggest to try Sony Support group
