    ad-hoc networks

    Wanting to know if I can set up an ad-hoc network with two wireless adapters
    on the same computer, one adapter for the connection and the other for the
    access point. In windows instructions for setting up a wireless network
    without a router, it states that one of the connections must be wired. I
    would like to do this because my neighbor and I share the internet, with the
    router located in their home, and I am unable to pick up a signal on the side
    of my house that is opposite to theirs. If I could do this it would extend
    the range of the signal and I would be able to connect to the internet
    anywhere in my home.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi
    You can receive the signal with a wireless adapter, and plug an Access Point
    to a wire network card on the same computer.
    The Card with the Access Point has to be bridged to the Wireless card.
    Here are variety of ideas, pick the one that suits you best.

    Re: ad-hoc networks

    Well...I guess I misspoke. I am attempting to do this with two wireless
    adapters on one single computer. One adapter to connect to the internet and
    the other to allow other computers to connect to the internet through. I
    have added a network to one of adapters and shared the other adpter but the
    network that I added is not available in the list of availale networks on the
    other computers in the house.

    Hi
    To have a stable secure Network under such situation you Need a Router set
    as Repeater that can receive the signal and carry it further.
    Otherwise you can try this,
